Jeff Bezos Trump Split - H 2015

Amazon founder appears to have had enough of his fellow billionaire businessman.

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos on Monday said it is time to send GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump into space. 

In a tweet posted in the afternoon, Bezos said, "Finally trashed by @realDonaldTrump. Will still reserve him a seat on the Blue Origin rocket. #sendDonaldtospace." 

The accompanying video shows Blue Origin’s New Shepard space vehicle landing last month after flying to space. Blue Origin is Bezos' private space company.

The send-Trump-to-space suggestion appears to be a response to the billionaire businessman's tweets posted earlier in the day saying Bezos uses his other property, The Washington Post, as a "big tax shelter."

Trump has gone into attack mode with multiple news outlets following stories critical of his campaign.
