Donald Trump attacked Amazon on Twitter Thursday morning. A report on Axios on Wednesday that he was obsessed with taking down the company sent the stock plunging more than 4 percent on Wednesday.
Tweeted Trump: “I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the Election. Unlike others, they pay little or no taxes to state & local governments, use our Postal System as their Delivery Boy (causing tremendous loss to the U.S.), and are putting many thousands of retailers out of business!”
Trump had only tweeted neutrally about Amazon, promoting his books and such, until December, 7, 2015, when, the day he announced his proposal for a Muslim ban, when he posted a series of tweets linking Amazon and the Washington Post. pic.twitter.com/TL8spAgqve
