President Trump’s Monday night Twitter rant targeted The Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos.

Bezos — not Amazon — purchased the newspaper in 2013. The Post has frequently been targeted by Trump as part of the “fake news” media.

On Monday, Trump said the Post was a “lobbyist weapon” being used to protect Amazon.
