FBN’s Charles Payne Defends Trump’s Amazon Attacks: Washington Post Is a ‘Mean-Spirited Publication’

Fox Business’ Charles Payne is jumping to defend President Donald Trump from… The Washington Post?

After the president tweeted about the Postal Service’s deal with Amazon, Heather Childers asked Payne what he thought of Trump’s comments. In response, Payne pivoted to criticizing The Washington Post because Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns it.

“I know there is a two-pronged thing here,” he said. “President Trump, I think, has a lot of reason to be upset with The Washington Post. It is just a mean-spirited publication, every single day takes unwarranted shots at the president and conservatives.”

“Having said that… Amazon cut a real good deal with the U.S. Postal Service,” he continued. “It sounded like a good deal but fixed their costs at a certain level. Now that has taken off they have to pay workers time and a half, they have to pay for the shipping. So Amazon is getting an amazing deal.”

Payne went on to say that “no one really knows” if the Postal Service is making money, but that “many think” they aren’t.
