Trump says he wasn't aware of tabloid's Bezos investigation

Share

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he was unaware the owner of the National Enquirer, American Media Inc., had been investigating Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

The Trump-friendly tabloid has a history of trying to help him.

It acknowledged paying $150,000 to Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal for the rights to her story about an alleged affair with Trump. The company then buried the story until after the 2016 election.

The Enquirer published a story last month about Bezos having an extramarital affair. Trump responded with a mocking tweet days later. It’s not unusual for him to lash out at The Washington Post owner.

Bezos hired private investigators to learn how the Enquirer obtained risque texts.
