Trump Reportedly Wants To Go After Amazon Tax Treatment; AMZN Stock Falls


Trump also claimed last year that Amazon was not paying internet taxes. He also slammed The Washington Post as “fake news.”

In addition, he questioned whether the newspaper is a “lobbyist weapon” to keep politicians from looking into Amazon and its no-tax monopoly.” Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of the e-commerce giant owns the newspaper.

In 2015, Trump suggested that Amazon’s stock would “crash” and “crumble like a paper bag” if the company had to pay fair taxes.
