Since taking office, President Trump has not been shy about expressing his thoughts on Twitter. He prefers the medium so that he can reach his audience with an unfiltered message. Trump’s advisors say he often fires off tweets in response to stories he sees on cable news or in the newspapers he reads.
Below are several examples of Trump’s tweets criticizing The Washington Post; its owner, Jeffrey P. Bezos; or Bezos’s primary business, Amazon. Many of Trump’s tweets about Amazon have been posted within hours after the publication of Post stories about his actions and policies. Bezos is the founder and chief executive of Amazon. Separately, he owns The Post personally.
