'Jeff Bozo:' Trump Slams Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Social Media

Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez

'Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!'

Bezos, who owns The Washington Post, and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, announced in a statement Wednesday that they had chose to divorce after 25 years of marriage.

In his tweet, Trump was referring to a story by the National Enquirer that reported on Bezos' interactions with his alleged mistress Lauren Sanchez. Finally, Trump made vague reference to a National Enquirer report on an alleged affair between Bezos and former news anchor Lauren Sanchez.

When President Donald Trump called Amazon founder Jeff Bezos "Jeff Bozo" in a Sunday evening tweet, it quickly triggered more amazement at the extent to which he's changed the nature of presidential discourse.

Perhaps it was only a matter of time until the president tweeted about Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' divorce from MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of 25 years.

The Enquirer is a longtime ally of Trump's, and its publisher admitted in December to having bought the rights to ex-playmate Karen McDougal's story of an affair with Trump so it could quash it using a "catch and kill" deal.


On Thursday, Trump seemed nearly sensitive about the situation, and told reporters of Bezos and the divorce: "I wish him luck".

"The National Enquirer is not a competitor to the Washington Post".

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.

Some reactions on Twitter gave Trump a little credit for his new nickname.

The Post published an article over the weekend finding that Trump had been secretive about his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, concealing details even from senior officials.

In March 2018, he went after Amazon again, posting, "I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the Election".
