Jeff Bezos has been the biggest winner from the Trump presidency

A Washington Post ad narrated by Tom Hanks celebrated American journalism with the pointed line, “Knowing keeps us free.”

Since the election, Bezos has become the world’s richest person, his net worth swelling by $US66.2 billion ($91.7 billion) through Friday, surpassing the gains of the world’s second-fastest riser during that period, French luxury-goods tycoon Bernard Arnault, by 50 per cent. Bezos’s wealth was valued at $US134.8 billion, making his fortune a third bigger than Bill Gates’s, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
