A recent report from the website cnet said that Google CEO Sunder Pichai met Steven Mnuchin this week in an effort to allay fears about the search giant’s work in China. After the meeting, the IS Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said he had no security concerns about Google’s work in China.

“We and the Chinese president have made an effort on this issue, and we are not aware of any areas in which Google is working with the Chinese government in a manner that raises concerns,” the US president said in an interview with CNBC.

Mnuchin said he and Pichai had “direct discussions” and described Google’s work in China as “very small.”

Mnuchin’s comments came a week after investor Peter Till, one of Trump’s top technology supporters, accused Google of an undeclared relationship with China and urged the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the CIA to conduct an investigation.

The research giant also faced extensive scrutiny of the project Dragonfly, which is said to be an initiative to build a search product for the Chinese market, which Google withdrew from it originally in 2010.
