(Daily Caller) — President Donald Trump has developed a deep animus towards Amazon and its billionaire founder Jeff Bezos, Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports.
Trump reportedly has floated the idea of taxing Amazon at a higher level in order make up for their effect on small business retailers at the local level. “He’s wondered aloud if there may be any way to go after Amazon with antitrust or competition law,” a source told Swan. The President also reportedly believes the U.S. post office is being fleeced by the company, a sentiment he has voiced in the past.
Why is the United States Post Office, which is losing many billions of dollars a year, while charging Amazon and others so little to deliver their packages, making Amazon richer and the Post Office dumber and poorer? Should be charging MUCH MORE!
