Bezos: 'Secure and Confident' Trump Would be 'Glad' to be Scrutinized

Posted September 14, 2018

Jeff Bezos, owner of the US Washington Post newspaper, has opined that it is "dangerous" for America's mop-haired 45th president Donald Trump to criticise the media.

Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook a decade after Bezos created Amazon, said three years ago that he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, would eventually give away 99 percent of their Facebook shares - worth $45 billion at the time - to efforts including eliminating "all disease in our children's lifetime". "I believe that it's an essential component of our democracy", Bezos said in an on-stage interview hosted by the Economic Club of Washington. "It is risky to demonize the media". "It's risky to say they're the 'enemy of the people'".

Despite the criticism, Bezos told interviewer David Rubenstein, founder of private equity giant Carlyle Group, that "The media is going to be fine". The American president is not known for restraint in using the microblogging platform to broadcast every thought and idea that crosses his mind. Business innovators who invent products that empower, authors who write books that inspire, government officials who serve their communities, teachers, doctors, carpenters, entertainers who make us laugh and cry, parents who raise children who go on to live lives of courage and compassion, and many more. I used to deal with the Tamil Tiger press office, and they kidnapped me.

"I do defend the Post", he said.

During the discussion, Bezos expressed disapproval with President Trump's attacks on the mainstream media.

Obama shared the billing with seven Democratic candidates in competitive U.S. He told the audience they were coming of age at one of those moments.

Within this, the Day 1 Families Fund will support existing non-profits that offer shelter and food to young homeless families.

The Day 1 Academies Fund will launch and operate a network of high-quality, full-scholarship, Montessori-inspired pre-schools in low-income and underserved communities, he said.

When the richest man in the world wears pajamas to a board meeting, it is sure to turn heads - but Jeff Bezos had a very important reason for doing so.

Following the event, PJM asked Bezos for his opinion of the Sanders bill but he declined to comment. Since March 2016, Amazon customers have also been able to order items from the Mary's Place's wishlist on the site, such as diapers and socks.

The announcement marks a deeper foray into philanthropy for Mr Bezos, whose fortune has soared to more than $160 billion thanks to his stake in Amazon, making him the world's richest person, according to Forbes. It seems that Bezos is attempting to quell that chatter as he announced the launch of the Day One Fund in order to start preschools and assist homeless families.
