As part of a frantic tweet storm on Sunday morning, President Donald Trump urged unionized workers at The Washington Post to go on strike for higher pay -- and rid him of "Fake News" for awhile.
Trump's antipathy for Post owner Jeff Bezos -- founder of Amazon.com -- caused the president to take up the mantle of workers' rights, with the president tweeting, "Washington Post employees want to go on strike because Bezos isn’t paying them enough. I think a really long strike would be a great idea. Employees would get more money and we would get rid of Fake News for an extended period of time! Is
@WaPo a registered lobbyist?"
Trump has long waged war against Bezos, complaining his paper is too critical of him, and has previously called for an higher postal rates for Amazon customers.
