Trump slams 'Jeff Bozo,' Washington Post over Amazon founder's divorce

Jeff Bezos And Lauren Sanchez's Shocking Texts Leaked And Her 'Loose Lips' Are The Reason Why

Jeff Bezos And Lauren Sanchez's Shocking Texts Leaked And Her 'Loose Lips' Are The Reason Why

In the tweet, Trump appeared to praise the National Enquirer, the gossip tabloid that published details of Bezos' relationship with the former TV news anchor Lauren Sanchez. Bezos bought the Post as an individual in 2013 and Amazon.com Inc. was not involved.

The Post published a bombshell report last week about Trump's meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Donald Trump is a vocal critic of Bezos, who once started a viral sensation by suggesting sending the president to space on one of his rockets.

In a jaw-dropping tweet President Donald Trump touted coverage by an unidentified Washington Post "competitor" - though clearly the National Enquirer - of the story behind the breakup of Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos' marriage. Trump invented a new nickname for the Amazon billionaire, "Jeff Bozo".

In a flurry of posts on Sunday evening, Trump seemed to revel in Jeff Bezos' impending divorce from his wife, MacKenzie. The president is no stranger to divorce himself, having been married three times, nor is he innocent of using ties to media for personal gain.

The dig on Sunday was particularly astonishing because National Enquirer chief executive David Pecker allegedly arranged to pay porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal to "catch and kill" their stories about their alleged affairs with Trump.

Trump has also always been critical toward Bezos, who bought The Washington Post - a publication the president has attacked over its reporting on his administration - in 2013. Trump phoned in to Fox News on Saturday night to dispute the article, saying: "I'm not keeping anything under wraps, I couldn't care less".

The president also has a history of animosity toward Amazon, which Bezos runs as CEO.
