Trump’s tweets came shortly after The National Enquirer came out with the latest in a series of articles about Bezos’s divorce from his wife of 25 years. 

American Media Inc., the parent company of the National Enquirer, is controlled by Trump’s longtime friend David Pecker.

American Media, Inc. in December admitted that it paid $150,000 to a woman “in concert with” Trump’s campaign “in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the 2016 presidential election.” The company agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors.

Trump last week wished Bezos “luck” on his divorce.

“It’s going to be a beauty,” Trump added.

The president regularly antagonizes Bezos, criticizing both Amazon and the Post. He has multiple times suggested that the paper lobbies for Amazon.
