WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump says he was unaware the owner of the National Enquirer, American Media Inc., had been investigating Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
The Trump-friendly tabloid has a history of trying to help him.
The Enquirer published a story last month about Bezos having an extramarital affair. Trump responded with a mocking tweet days later. It's not unusual for him to lash out at The Washington Post owner.
Bezos hired private investigators to learn how the Enquirer obtained risque texts.
Trump was asked Tuesday whether he was aware of AMI's investigation and responded, "No. No, I wasn't."
