One again Donald Trump has kindled the fires of conspiracy.
The soon-to-be Republican nominee for president says Jeff Bezos, the Amazon CEO who owns The Washington Post, is using the paper to attack him and the other political enemies who would force the massive online retailer to pay more in taxes.
Donald Trump told Sean Hannity in an interview Thursday that Bezos is using the Post “like a toy” and “for power so that the politicians in Washington don’t tax Amazon like they should be taxed.”
Bezos believes “I would go after him for anti-trust because he has a huge anti-trust problem,” Trump said. In his effort tp keep Trump out of the White House and protect his monopoly, the Amazon founder has assigned more than 20 Washington Post reporters to look at every aspect of his life, Trump said.
“We can’t let him get away with it,” Trump told Hannity.
“Every hour we’re getting calls from reporters from the Washington Post asking ridiculous questions,” Trump said. The stories are “bad” and “wrong” and “in many cases they have no proper information,” he added.
“They’re slopping them together and they’re going to do a book,” he predicted. “And the book is going to be all false stuff because the stories are so wrong.”
