TRUMP: The Washington Post Should Register As A Lobbyist

Trump recently criticized the Washington Post on Twitter, saying it should register as a lobbyist. He makes an excellent point. When you consider the fact the the WaPo is owned by Amazon which actually does have lobbyists on its payroll.

Trump says The Washington Post should register as ‘lobbyist’

President Trump said Saturday that The Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, should register as a lobbyist for Amazon in Washington.

In a tweet about the U.S. Postal service losing money on delivery of Amazon packages, Mr. Trump said the losses amount to billions of dollars for U.S. taxpayers.

“The Failing N.Y. Times reports that ‘the size of the company’s lobbying staff has ballooned,’ and that…does not include the Fake Washington Post, which is used as a “lobbyist” and should so REGISTER,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “If the P.O. ‘increased its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.’ This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!”

The president has feuded frequently with The Post, which has been highly critical of his presidency. Last summer, he called the newspaper a “lobbyist weapon” for Amazon.
