Trump congratulates National Enquirer for exposing affair of 'Jeff Bozo'

On Saturday, President Trump accused the Washington Post of being a "lobbyist" newspaper for Amazon.

In March, shares in Amazon dropped after it was revealed that President Trump "hates" the company, and the president has repeatedly referred to the Washington Post as the "Amazon Washington Post", and "fake news".

In a jaw-dropping tweet President Donald Trump touted coverage by an unidentified Washington Post "competitor" - though clearly the National Enquirer - of the story behind the breakup of Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos' marriage.

On Sunday, the President of the United States took to Twitter to mock Bezos' name and seemingly reference the National Enquirer's report.

The news has finally gotten to the US President Donald Trump, and, as he was never big on the world's richest man, he has something to say.

Bezos, 55, announced his divorce from wife MacKenzie Bezos on Wednesday, and news of the billionaire's relationship with former television anchor Lauren Sanchez broke. The Enquirer later that day published a story online about Bezos' alleged relationship with former Fox TV personality Laura Sanchez and followed up with a longer print version of a piece it touted as a major investigative article. "Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better and more responsible hands!" The National Enquirer admitted paying hush money to bury a Playboy model's claims that she had an affair with Trump.

This is not the first time that Trump has commented on Bezos's impending divorce: last week, POTUS wished him "luck".

Trump has also always been critical towards Bezos, who bought the Washington Post a publication the President has attacked for its agenda against his administration in 2013. The Associated Press reported in August that the Enquirer kept a safe of potentially damaging Trump stories.
