Donald Trump turned his Twitter ire toward Jeff Bezos on Monday, accusing the Amazon CEO of using his newspaper as a tax dodge to prop up the retailer.
The Republican presidential candidate tweeted that Bezos's Washington Post was a "scam" used to save "[Bezos'] no-profit company" Amazon.
Trump's tweets were likely prompted by an article posted by The Washington Post early on Monday fact-checking several of the presidential candidate's claims about his ability to predict terrorism.
Late Monday, Bezos returned fire with a bit of humor. The Internet mogul tweeted that he'd like to 'send Donald to space' on the Blue Origin, his private space firm:
As it happens, Amazon is a profitable company. The online retailer reported third-quarter earnings of 17 cents per share on $25.36 billion in revenue, beating Wall Street estimates that it would post a loss.
But it may not actually matter either way. Bezos owns the Post personally through his own company, Bezos Expeditions, and not through Amazon.
