Trump Says Apple's Steve Jobs Would 'Not Be Happy' With Widow's Magazine Ties

President Donald Trump hit out at the widow of late Apple founder Steve Jobs—Laurene Powell Jobs—on Sunday morning, criticizing her involvement with The Atlantic magazine and calling on supporters to "let her know how you feel."

Last week, The Atlantic published an article claiming that Trump referred to American World War One dead as "losers" and U.S. troops as "suckers." Trump and the White House angrily rejected the report, which was confirmed by multiple other reporters.

Trump renewed his attacks on the publication Sunday, taking aim at Jobs after Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk noted that she has donated $500,000 to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign.

Jobs is the founder of the investing and philanthropic Emerson Collective organization, which became the majority owner of The Atlantic in July 2017.

"Steve Jobs would not be happy that his wife is wasting money he left her on a failing Radical Left Magazine that is run by a con man (Goldberg) and spews FAKE NEWS & HATE," Trump wrote. Trump was referring to Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Goldberg, who has run The Atlantic since 2016.

Trump urged supporters to get in touch with Jobs. "Call her, write her, let her know how you feel!!!" the president wrote.

The publication has been critical of Trump throughout his time in office, and in 2016 its editorial board endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as the next president. The board warned that Trump "has no record of public service and no qualifications for public office."

"His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself," the endorsement of Clinton read.

Its article on Trump's alleged disdain for American veterans is the magazine's latest hit on the administration. The president dismissed the report as fake news on Twitter.

"The Atlantic Magazine is dying, like most magazines, so they make up a fake story in order to gain some relevance," he wrote. "Story already refuted, but this is what we are up against. Just like the Fake Dossier. You fight and and fight, and then people realize it was a total fraud!"

Other reporters later confirmed in full or in part The Atlantic's allegations. They included journalists working for the Associated Press, The Washington Post and even Fox News, which has generally been deferential to the president and his administration.

An angry Trump urged Fox News to fire national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin, who spoke to two military officials to confirm part of The Atlantic's report. "Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting," the president wrote on Twitter. "Never even called us for comment. @FoxNews is gone!"
