Trump Rips Amazon’s ‘Jeff Bozo’ In Bizarre Tweet Attacking The Washington Post

Continuing his mad Twitter marathon, President Donald Trump on Sunday night slammed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as “Jeff Bozo” in a tweet attacking The Washington Post, which Bezos owns.

“So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post,” Trump tweeted. “Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!”

Trump’s tweet came shortly after The National Enquirer came out with the latest in a series of articles about Bezos’s divorce from his wife of 25 years.

American Media Inc., the parent company of the National Enquirer, is controlled by Trump’s longtime friend David Pecker, who in December admitted that he paid $150,000 to a woman “in concert with” Trump’s campaign “in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the 2016 presidential election.”

Pecker has now agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump regularly antagonizes Bezos, criticizing both Amazon and the Post. He has multiple times suggested that the paper lobbies for Amazon.

The president last week fired off a tweet wishing Bezos “luck” on his divorce.

“It’s going to be a beauty,” Trump wrote.
