May 14 (UPI) — Jeff Bezos, the founder and executive chairman of Amazon, has asked a new Disinformation Governance Board created by Joe Biden‘s administration to investigate a tweet from the president himself.
” The newly formed Disinformation Board should examine this tweet or perhaps they need to form another Non Sequitur Board.” Bezos stated in an . tweet.
“Raising taxes [corporate] is something you can discuss. It is important to talk about how to control inflation. It is a misdirection to try and mash them together. “
His comments came in response to a tweet from Biden’s personal Twitter account in which he appeared to suggest higher corporate tax rates to bring down inflation.
” Do you want to lower inflation? “Let’s ensure that the wealthiest corporations get their fair share,” Biden tweeted.
The board was created by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as an internal working group “with the explicit goal” of protecting Americans’ freedom of speech, civil rights, civil liberties, and privacy, the department said in a statement earlier this month.
” The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has the responsibility of protecting the United States from threats to its security, which includes disinformation threats,” states the Homeland Security statement.
“The Department is focused on disinformation that threatens the security of the American people, including disinformation spread by foreign states such as Russia, China, and Iran, or other adversaries
