Donald Trump has fought against Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, whose philanthropy organization is owned by the Emerson Collective The Atlantic Magazine – which reported earlier this week that the president had made derogatory comments about dead American soldiers.
The president urged his supporters to “call her, text her, let her know how you are feeling” when he retweeted a tweet from Charlie Kirk, the founder of a right wing student movement.
“Steve Jobs wouldn’t be happy if his wife was wasting money. He left her on a failing Radical Left Magazine run by a scammer (Goldberg) that spits out FAKE NEWS & HATE. Call her, text her, let her know how you feel !!! Said Mr. Trump.
An outspoken Trump supporter, Mr Kirk said in his tweet: “Steve Jobs̵
“Do you know who owns a controlling interest in The Atlantic? Laurene Powell Jobs. “
Ms. Powell Jobs, a billionaire who inherited the Steven P. Jobs Trust from her late husband after his death in 2011, is a frequent advocate of educational reform, social redistribution and environmental protection.
She is a supporter of the Democratic Party and donated $ 2 million to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election, raising another $ 4 million for her.
When Mr Biden became the Democratic Party’s suspected presidential candidate, she donated at least $ 500,000 to his campaign The New York Times in July.
Earlier this week The Atlantic published an article describing Trump as unwilling to honor the US war dead and instead referred to lost service members and prisoners of war as “losers” and “fools”.
The Trump administration has resisted allegations made by the magazine’s editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg, accusing Mr Trump The Atlantic to “die” and thus invent history.
But the president has publicly expressed his contempt for service members who have died in the service or who have been previously captured.
It was best known for denigrating the service of Senator John McCain, widely regarded as one of the greatest living war heroes in the country. Mr. Trump said during an event in 2015, “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who haven’t been captured. “
