Donald Trump is now at war with the Washington Post.
The Washington Post assigned 20 reporters to work around the clock to do nothing but dig up information on “every phase” of Trump’s career and life, according to a Washington Examiner report.
“There’s a lot we don’t know,” Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward told the National Association of Realtors convention in Washington yesterday. “We have 20 people working on Trump, we’re going to do a book, we’re doing articles about every phase of his life.”
But, just like with every fight, Trump is hitting back even harder.
Last night, Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the newspaper is only going after him because the owner of the publication, who also owns Amazon, is scared of his presidency, citing that he is “getting away with murder” over anti-trust issues.
“Every hour we’re getting calls from reporters from The Washington Post asking ridiculous questions,” Trump told Hannity. “And I will tell you, this is owned as a toy by Jeff Bezos … Amazon is getting away with murder, tax-wise. He’s using The Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don’t tax Amazon like they should be taxed.”
“He thinks I’ll go after him for antitrust,” Trump continued. “Because he’s got a huge antitrust problem because he’s controlling so much, Amazon is controlling so much of what they are doing.”
“He’s using The Washington Post, which is peanuts, he’s using that for political purposes to save Amazon in terms of taxes and in terms of antitrust.”
