Republican front-runner Donald Trump, still in fighting form after last night’s presidential candidates debate, found a fresh target today: Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos.
Trump says Bezos bought the Washington Post to gain political influence, which the e-commerce billionaire plans to use to the benefit of Amazon.

“That’s not right,” Trump said from Fort Worth, Texas. “Believe me, if I become president, oh do they have problems. They’re gonna have such problems.”
This isn’t the first time Trump has criticized Bezos and his investment in the Washington Post — which he acquired in 2013 through Nash Holdings, his personal investment firm. It should be noted that Trump is not a particular fan of the mainstream media.
