President Donald Trump took another swing at the "fake news Washington Post" on Thursday, condemning the newspaper's "phony headlines" regarding the ongoing trade tit-for-tat with China and slamming it as "chief lobbyist" for Amazon, whose founder, Jeff Bezos, owns the newspaper.
Trump was referring to a story in the Post, the headline of which was changed after it was first published.
The story later bore the headline: "Trump pushes back on fears of a trade war with China."
Trump has been vocal in his opposition of Amazon’s use of the U.S. Postal Service, claiming it is losing money delivering Amazon packages.
He also has accused the company of not paying enough taxes and putting small retailers out of business, adding to investors' worries that the company could be subject to more regulation.
Trump offered no evidence to back up his criticisms and did not suggest any actions he would take.
