Bezos: Amazon HQ2 decision will be made by end of the year

Bezos: Amazon HQ2 decision will be made by end of the year

Jeff Bezos on Wednesday uploaded a post on instagram donning a black night suit with white piping, paired with bedroom slippers.

Citing the Amazon mantra of customer obsession, Bezos said in a tweet "the child will be the customer". It's healthy. What the president should say is, this is right, this is good, I'm glad I'm bring scrutinized, and that would be so secure and confident.

Mr Bezos, during a question and answer session at a dinner hosted by the Economic Club of Washington, said Mr Trump's attacks risk eroding protections and social norms important for democracy. "But it is really risky to demonize the media. It's risky to say that they're the enemy of the people". "The media is going to be fine", Bezos said, according to AFP, before paraphrasing Post editor Marty Baron: "The administration may be at war with us, but we are not at war with the administration". The American president is not known for restraint in using the microblogging platform to broadcast every thought and idea that crosses his mind. "We're going to push through this". I used to deal with the Tamil Tiger press office, and they kidnapped me. "Never have I been more comfortable at an Amazon board meeting!" "The secret sauce of Amazon - the number one thing that has made us successful has by far is obsessive, compulsive focus on the customer".

Within this, the Day 1 Families Fund will support existing non-profits that offer shelter and food to young homeless families. The reason is that the employees of Amazon were wearing pyjamas to work across the globe to raise awareness of childhood cancer. There will also be full scholarships for Montessori-inspired preschools in "underserved" communities, he said.

The Bezos gift is one of the biggest single donations ever announced for preschools, if not the biggest, said Avo Makdessian, director of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation's Centre for Early Learning. "I don't feel the need to defend Amazon".

Bezos has made headlines lately, promising $2 billion to fight homelessness and substandard preschool education after some bad publicity last week when Sen. "We will build an organization to directly operate these schools", he added.

Bezos, now the world's richest person, asked Twitter followers a year ago for ideas about how he should shape his "philanthropy strategy".
