Updated : September 14, 2018 08:49 AM IST
Bezos privately owns the Washington Post, which has been among the media that have been the frequent target of broadsides from Trump.
Amazon has announced 20 finalists in North America for its planned investment of $5 billion and 50,000 jobs. At a speech before the Economic Club of Washington on Thursday, Bezos did not offer any favorites for the project.
Asked about Trump's repeated criticism of both the Washington Post and Amazon, Bezos called it a "mistake" for any elected official to "attack media and journalists."
