Jeff Bezos Slams Trump For

Washington Post owner and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos - no stranger to attacks on his companies and himself from President Trump - said that the president should welcome media scrutiny instead of bashing journalists.

Bezos reiterated the company's timetable for announcing the winning city during a talk Thursday evening at the Economic Club of Washington, DC, but he didn't hint at which city he's leaning toward. "But it is really risky to demonize the media. It's unsafe to say they're the 'enemy of the people'". The American president is not known for restraint in using the microblogging platform to broadcast every thought and idea that crosses his mind. That vow came despite the fact that the Post, citing anonymous sources, also reported that Amazon's board of directors was traveling to Washington.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has held Bezos up as an example of a leader of a company that does not pay its workers enough.

In the business world, instinct is more important that data sets, according to Bezos.

Bezos, the reigning world's richest man, released a statement on Twitter on Thursday explaining that he and his wife MacKenzie were committing $2 billion to launch a new initiative called the Bezos Day One Fund. Bezos, who is 54 and worth $160 billion, pledged $2 billion to get the effort rolling.

"We're going to push through this", he added.

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos says he is giving $2 billion U.S. to start a fund that will open preschools in low-income neighbourhoods and give money to non-profits that helps homeless families. It will support organisations that provide shelter and food for homeless families and will start a network of nonprofit Montessori-inspired preschools for underserved communities.
