Trump slams Amazon for ‘putting many thousands of retailers out of business’

Source: The Hill | March 29, 2018 | Julia Manchester

President Trump publicly criticized Amazon in a tweet on Thursday, citing his concerns with how the online retailer pays its taxes.

The tweet comes after Axios reported on Wednesday that Trump wants to take aim at the retail giant, citing the company’s tax treatment. 

“He’s obsessed with Amazon,” a source told the outlet. “Obsessed.”

“He’s wondered aloud if there may be any way to go after Amazon with antitrust or competition law,” a source who spoke to Trump said, according to Axios. 

The president has reportedly cited the company’s treatment of the U.S. Postal Service.

“The whole post office thing, that’s very much a perception he has,” another source said. “It’s been explained to him in multiple meetings that his perception is inaccurate and that the post office actually makes a ton of money from Amazon.”

The president has also frequently taken aim at The Washington Post, which Amazon owner Jeff Bezos purchased in 2013.

    Could someone please put a muzzle on Trump? Oh, and lock his hands so he can’t tweet?

    Every time he opens his big mouth or sends one of his crazed tweets, the Dow goes haywire. People lose money. Businesses suffer. And all because he has a childish tiff with someone or some feeling of persecution because not everyone is falling down in worship of him.

    There is something wrong with this man. His immaturity and mental instability is going to ruin this country. The question is, who among our elected representatives will have the guts to have Trump removed before this country goes down in flames?
