President Donald Trump attacked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and The “Fake News” Washington Post in a Sunday morning tweet.

Trump asserted that Washington Post employees “want to go on strike because [Jeff] Bezos isn’t paying them enough,” and suggested it would be a “great idea” because it would put the paper out of business for a period of time.

“I think a really long strike would be a great idea,” Trump wrote. “Employees would get more money and we would get rid of Fake News for an extended period of time!”

“Is @WaPo a registered lobbyist?” he added.

Trump has previously accused Bezos of using the Post as a lobbying arm for Amazon and has urged him to register the newspaper as a lobbyist. (RELATED: Trump Wants Washington Post To Register As A Lobbyist For Amazon)
