Amazon's Jeff Bezos Asks Chinese Questions With Elon Musk's Twitter Acquisition

"pain. Inflation is …": Jeff Bezos accuses Biden of lowering gas prices

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has criticized President Joe Biden for calling on oil companies to lower ultra-high gasoline prices and urging the White House to come to the defense of US leaders on Sunday.

“My message to companies that run gas stations and price with pumps is simple. This is a time of war and a global crisis,” Biden tweeted Saturday.

“Lower the price you are charging for your pump to reflect the cost you are paying for your product, and do it now,” Biden added.

Bezos said Biden’s remarks corresponded to “either a direct misunderstanding or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics.”

“It hurts. Inflation is a very important issue for the White House to continue to say this,” a US billionaire tweeted Saturday.
