Trump calls for Amazon shipping and tax hike, demands 'Fake Washington Post' register as lobbyist

President Trump attacked Amazon with a pair of Saturday morning tweets accusing the company of underpaying for shipping while using the Washington Post as its lobbyist.

Trump called for “real costs (and taxes)” for Amazon, but did not mention billionaire Jeff Bezos, who owns both companies, by name.



It’s unclear what tax policy Trump was referencing. Amazon started collecting sales tax in all states that do have a sales tax last year, ending a state-by-state policy that gave it a heavy advantage over brick-and-mortar stores.
