Trump welcomes the press but what he doesn't like is when you guys make false claims or edit videos so that it's taken out of context.

Tech businessmen (with few exceptions) are so fake and politically correct. Although they are rich and so on, they still have that Beta male in them.

You can't critique Bezos without admitting Trump is cut from the same cloth.

No... Trump is different, he doesn't care about making money and hiring cheap labor. He is a real American, a real capitalist, a real conservative. LOL

Fun fact: Bill Gates would most likely be richer than Bezos if he didn't consistently give so much of his money to charity. disclaimer: the last article I read that supported this claim is a few months old from when Bezos had just reached the 100B mark.

The average warehouse worker for Amazon has an annual salary of $26,400. While that is below middle class earnings, it is definitely above the poverty line.
Jmad0113 (2 months ago)
How much do Amazon workers get paid?
sid ney (2 months ago)
Yes and then he rubs every workers nose in it by asking how they believe he should invest his money . Just shows how full of themselves humans can be ...
hfredydl (2 months ago)
Amazon is disgusting how it doesn’t provide livable wages to workers or demand minimum wage for work it contracts out to independent contractors
sid ney (2 months ago)
I agree with you....how is it that the law on paying a living wage doesn't apply to this company and Amazon don't pay proper company tax either ? He is like many others in leadership positions , a lie and a slave driver ....
Michael (2 months ago)
I work in cyber security, and Amazon is the wall-mart of the internet. Moreover, he’s only the wealthiest person because Bill Gates gave over 3/4 of his money away. That and no one talks about families like the Rothschilds...dont work for them

Another leftist globalist promoting indoctrination of children . next he'll be bringing in Gates and the Koch brothers.

Because wealth never actually did define a mans soul. A nation isnt defined by its super dazzling rich, its defined by its weaknesses- the ways it treats its most vulnerable.

And yet Amazon is removing books with conservative content in them. Jeff Bezos leads the way in book burning by limiting the books that people even have access too. Hitler would blush at his efficiency.

*this is one of those situations where Jeff and Trump both agree on the same thing but still find a way to argue, they both think there should be freedom of the press, being able to accurately report what going on and to punish and prevent fake news from getting out (at least i would hope Jeff agrees with that)*

+RaquelRivera hes never supported any news network that consistently does fake news, he even has nick names for some of them, why would he do that if he supported them?

0:50 so if CNN starts reporting that Donald Trump raped Susan Boyle, should he say that it is a good thing? We can all admit that so many articles are far fetched and people will believe literally anyone. If I was a woman and wanted money and fame, all I had to say was Donald Trump groped me, or called me a racial slur, and everyone will believe me, yet I have no evidence to support what I say
