President Donald Trump on Sunday attacked Laurene Powell Jobs, a philanthropist billionaire who owns The Atlantic and Axios after the Atlantic reported that he disparaged slain American soldiers.
Trump said Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple Chairman Steve Jobs, is “wasting money” Steve Jobs left her after he died by owning the magazine that published a damaging report about him last week.
“Steve Jobs would not be happy that his wife is wasting money he left her on a failing Radical Left Magazine that is run by a con man (Goldberg) and spews FAKE NEWS & HATE,” Trump tweeted. “Call her, write her, let her know how you feel!!!”
On Thursday, The Atlantic published a story written by its editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg that reported four anonymous sources said Trump called Americans who died in battle “losers” and “suckers.”
The article outlines Trump’s derogatory remarks about service members and their intelligence. The Atlantic also reported that Trump asked for wounded veterans to be kept out of military parades.
Laurene Powell Jobs inherited billions of dollars of stock in Apple and Disney from her late husband after he died in 2011. She founded The Emerson Collective, a social change organization focused on education, immigration reform, the environment, media and journalism and health. In 2017, The Emerson Collective bought a majority stake in The Atlantic.
