In other news, President Trump is mocking Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos for his recent announcement that he’s getting a divorce. On Twitter, Trump referred to him as “Jeff Bozo” and said he was “so sorry” to hear that he was “taken down” by a competitor who he called more accurate than the Washington Post, which Bezos owns. The “competitor” Trump is referring to is the National Enquirer, which published what it claims are text messages between Bezos and his new girlfriend.
