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.

Ivanka Trump: Born to legitimize corruption and make the shoddy look cute



On July 27, 2017, near the end of the one of the most compelling hearings yet on the Trump-Russia affair, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) offered an extraordinary insight. It shot through the proceedings like a comet.

"Corrupt kleptocrats and international criminals make themselves rich in criminality and corruption," he said. "Then at some point they need the legitimate world in order to protect and account for their stolen proceeds."

What? Whitehouse sketched a new bipolar world order, in which the so-called legitimate world, which includes the United States, is not at war with, but rather deeply enmeshed in, the corrupt one, where governments are built on bribery, kleptocracy, electoral fraud, slush funds, legal plunder and nepotism.

Whitehouse then addressed William F. Browder, the hedge funder turned global finance reformer, who was giving testimony on foreign-agent registry violations. "How good a job is the legitimate world doing about fencing off the corrupt world rather than facilitating it? "

Amazon is officially the new Walmart only worse

Amazon is under fire after refusing to cut the NRA's TV show from its streaming service.

The e-commerce giant's behavior is under the microscope, as cities offer up millions of dollars in tax incentives as they compete over HQ2.

Walmart was once portrayed as the biggest villain in American capitalism. Now, Amazon is becoming the new symbol of everything that's wrong with big business.

As Americans demand that companies take a stand on gun control, Walmart is stepping up — and Amazon is falling short.
