Google adds Trump, Johnson added back to ‘presidential candidates’ search

COLUMBUS (WFLA) – Google has added Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson to their ‘presidential candidates’ search.

Early Wednesday morning, an automated box showed for users typing in ‘presidential candidates’ brought up a handy guide above all of the other search results with pictures of candidates with active campaigns. Clicking on a picture brought up searches for the candidates.

Democractic nominee Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Green Party candidate Jill Stein were all pictured. The only problem is that Republican candidate Donald Trump wasn’t included. Neither was Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

Shortly after 9:15am Wednesday, the guide above the search results had been removed from the search results.

In a tweet on July 17, Green Party candidate Jill Stein posted a screen shot of another version of the guide showing five candidates. Sometime between then and this morning, Donald Trump and Gary Johnson disappeared.

As of 11:30am, photos of Trump and Johnson appeared to be back displaying alongside the rest of the active candidates for the White House.

It’s unclear why the two candidates suddenly disappeared and then reappeared.
