Amazon loses nearly $40 billion in value on report Trump wants to 'go after' company's tax treatment

President Donald Trump is not a fan of Amazon.

Axios is reporting that Trump wants to "go after" the e-commerce giant, citing five sources who have talked about Amazon with him.

"He's obsessed with Amazon," one source told the media outlet. "Obsessed."

Trump has discussed altering the company's tax treatment because several of his friends told him Amazon is hurting their businesses and "killing shopping malls and brick-and-mortar retailers," according to Axios.

1. trump is out of control......

The reason he is obsessed with Amazon is because Bezos is a real billionaire and trump isn't.

14. Bannon does whole event speeches slamming Bezos

And I would hazard a guess, Bannon still talks to Trump. Or through toadys in the White House.

3. Damn, Spanky (I mean Sparky)! Now that your taxes are heading to the toaster, you want others to fry

.

This fucking guy is all about keeping his tax returns private, yet he wants Amazon to be exposed.

9. Heh, a good many here continue to treat it the same as Facebook in that they can live without 'em

and often never even used them. And since they can, everyone else should be able to as well!

10. Well this would be another violation of the law.

A President cannot legally use the IRS to go after someone he doesn't like. Nixon tried it and it didn't work out for him either.

16. That is outrageous that a president would go after private citizen or a company...Trump is the worst

The GOP show how little they value our Republic and the rule of law everyday that let that Russian traitor spy remain in office.

17. Does Bezos have any grounds to sue his ass??

 

I'm hoping so. It's preposterous for him to be able to shoot off his mouth and affect stocks that much.

19. I seem to recall Tangeranus stating...

...rather smugly, I might add, that when he didn't pay taxes it was because he was 'smart'.

Go figure.
