US President Donald Trump on Thursday attacked the European Union for fining Google $7.4 billion ($5 billion US) for harming its competitors, tweeting that the incident proved the regional bloc has "taken advantage of the USA, but not for long!"
Google has a market share of more than 90 percent for general Internet search, licensed smart mobile operating systems and app stores for Android software, the European Union said in 2016.
"Google has used Android as a vehicle to cement the dominance of its search engine".
Google was previously penalized by the European Commission just past year, when the search giant was slapped with a $2.7 billion fine for lowering the ranking of competitor shopping comparison tools to promote its own. "They truly have taken advantage of the USA, but not for long!" Google has already stopped paying OEMs and carriers in order to have Google search be the exclusive search offering on devices after the European Union started to dig into the issue back in 2014, so that's one thing off of Google's plate already.
There's apparently no concrete plan in place, as Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Android/Chrome boss Hiroshi Lockheimer reportedly have yet to sign off on a roadmap.

We are concerned that today's decision will upset the careful balance that we have struck with Android, and that it sends a troubling signal in favor of proprietary systems over open platforms.
