Donald Trump Targets Jeff Bezos over Amazon and Washington Post antitrust claims

On Thursday, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump claimed that Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos was using the newspaper to sway politicians away from increasing corporate taxes. Trump also claimed that Bezos personally ordered a team of Washington Post reporters to investigate every aspect of the candidate's life.

The Washington Post has built a sizable army of reporters to dig into every facet of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's life, urged on by new owner Jeff Bezos (Democrat donor) to reveal everything about the potential nominees. 
Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward revealed Wednesday that the Post has assigned 20 staffers to Trump. In addition the paper plans a book. "There's a lot we don't know," he told the National Association of Realtors convention in Washington. 
"We have 20 people working on Trump, we're going to do a book, we're doing articles about every phase of his life," he added
