Amazon's Bezos comments on Trump criticism

Here’s why the world’s richest man Jeff Bezos wore pajamas to a board meeting Mark Zuckerberg's casual look gets competition from world's richest man as Jeff Bezos wore pajamas to board meeting

A picture shared by Amazon chief Jeff Bezos on Instagram. It's healthy. What the president should say is, this is right, this is good, I'm glad I'm bring scrutinized, and that would be so secure and confident. While no big announcement was expected to be made regarding the location of the second headquarters, that didn't stop Rubenstein from slyly asking Bezos where HQ2 will be heading to.

Bezos tweeted a statement Thursday that the fund will issue annual leadership awards to organizations "doing compassionate, needle-moving work to provide shelter and hunger support to address the immediate needs of young families".

The staggering fortunes of the likes of Bezos, Gates and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have created a second Gilded Age in the U.S. and "a new generation of megagivers", Callahan said. Amazon's Jeff Bezos attended a board meeting in pajamas to raise awareness about childhood cancer, which is the second leading cause of death in the USA between kids aged 4 and 14.

The "Day 1 Academies Fund" will start an organization to operate a new network of full-scholarship pre-schools for low-income communities.

Appearing before the Economic Club of Washington on Thursday evening, Bezos warned elected officials that criticizing reporters is an afront to an "essential component of our democracy".

He said he did not know how much money he would eventually give away.

Amazon has come under heavy criticism for how workers are treated at its distribution centres and its tax contributions. But it's really unsafe to demonize the media.

Bezos held true to that word, even jokingly pushing back on the smattering of boos that came from the D.C. crowd when he declined to reveal the victor of the HQ2 contest.

While the online retail giant's presence made Seattle the fastest-growing big city in the United States, it also has taken a toll on its residents, driving up rent prices, clogging traffic and overwhelming public transportation.

So, Jeff, from one member of the human species to another, I implore you to not only engage in philanthropy but also try to understand how you can fix Amazon's problems to set a better example. "It's risky to say that they're the enemy of the people". "We're going to push through this".

He added that "we live in a society where it's not just the laws of the land that protect us.it's also the social norms that protect us". "The secret sauce of Amazon - the number one thing that has made us successful has by far is obsessive, compulsive focus on the customer".
