Amazon founder Jeff Bezos asked the Biden Administration’s new Disinformation Board to review the president’s tweet claiming that growing inflation could be tamed by raising corporate taxes.
Joe Biden, who has faced criticism over the 40-year high rates which hit 8.3 percent, tweeted on Friday that taxing corporations more would help ease the economic strain impacting Americans.
‘You want to bring down inflation? Let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share,’ Biden tweeted.
Bezos responded within hours, claiming the president was conflating two seperate issues that only amounted to misdirection, and should be held accountable by the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Board.
‘The newly created Disinformation Board should review this tweet, or maybe they need to form a new Non Sequitur Board instead,’ Bezos tweeted.
‘Raising corp taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical to discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection.’
