President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to criticize Laurene Powell Jobs, head of the influential Emerson Collective, tying her to a story in the Atlantic that described his indifference to fallen soldiers and his disdain for soldiers taken as prisoners of war or wounded in battle.
ET, Trump highlighted a tweet that said Jobs donated to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign and had a majority stake in the Atlantic magazine, though it’s actually the Emerson Collective that owns the stake.
