Neil Bradley, the chief executive of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, says it is “inappropriate” for government officials to use their offices to criticize American companies.

“It’s inappropriate for government officials to use their position to attack an American company,” Bradley told The New York Times in an article published Tuesday.

Bradley’s comments came after President Trump launched a series of tweets over several days in which he accused tech giant Amazon of scamming the U.S. Postal Service and failing to collect taxes on some sales.

Bradley did not mention Trump by name, but told the Times that such attacks on U.S. companies by politicians undermine “economic growth and job creation.”
