REUTERS/Mike StoneJeff Bezos may want to get that rocket ready.
Donald Trump, the Republican frontrunner, attacked the Amazon founder and CEO during an appearance in Texas on Friday, saying that if he becomes president, Amazon is "going to have such problems."
Trump accused Bezos of buying the Washington Post so Amazon would benefit from the "political influence" of the newspaper.
Here's what Trump said about Bezos, according to the clip from CNBC, available below:
"I have respect for Jeff Bezos, but he bought The Washington Post to have political influence, and I gotta tell you, we have a different country than we used to have," Trump said. "He owns Amazon. He wants political influence so that Amazon will benefit from it. That's not right. And believe me, if I become president, oh, do they have problems. They're going to have such problems."
Bezos bought The Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million through his personal investment company. It's a separate company from Amazon.
