Trump mocks "Jeff Bozo" while calling National Enquirer "more accurate" than Washington Post

President Trump praised the National Enquirer without naming it on Sunday night, while calling Amazon founder and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos "Jeff Bozo."

"So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!"

Why it matters: The National Enquirer is the publication that published many of the details on the end of Bezos' marriage. Its parent company admitted making a payment "in concert with" the Trump campaign to buy and suppress a story about Trump's alleged affair with Playboy model Karen McDougal.
