Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post, will be living in the Kalorama neighborhood next door to Obama and Ivanka Trump, who both recently rented houses in the area.

“I won’t be leading The Washington Post day-to-day,” he said when he bought the Post in 2013.

“I am happily living in ‘the other Washington’ where I have a day job that I love. Besides that, The Post already has an excellent leadership team that knows much more about the news business than I do, and I’m extremely grateful to them for agreeing to stay on.” (RELATED: Ivanka Trump’s Swanky New Home In Washington)
