Milan – Inflation is still causing the Amazon founder to quarrel Jeff Bezos con the US President Joe Biden. It was Bezos who launched a campaign against the White House, commenting on White House Order Number One, which urged companies that operate petrol pumps to “cut prices immediately” in order to “reflect the actual costs” they incur for them. fuel.
Bezos asked to be challenged vigorously: “Inflation is a very important issue for the White House to continue making statements like this,” Bezos tweeted. “It’s either an obvious diversion or a profound misunderstanding of the underlying market dynamics,” Bezos said.
The Presidential Press Office dismissed criticism of Karen-Jean-Pierre that the price of oil fell last month by $15 a barrel while the price of oil at the pump “barely decreased”. “But I think, it’s not surprising that you think that oil and gas companies are making record profits at the expense of the American people is the way our economy should function,” Bezos tweeted.
Already in May, the number one Amazonian accused Biden of confusing ideas, after the US president said: Do you want to reduce inflation? Let’s make sure the richer companies pay a fair share. It’s fair to discuss corporate tax increases, and it’s important to keep inflation in check. Bezos’ response to the question: “Putting the two topics together is misleading.”
