Trump attacks Amazon on Twitter day after report said he was 'obsessed' with going after it

  • President Donald Trump attacked Amazon in a tweet Thursday morning.

  • The president took issue with Amazon's tax treatment, use of the US Postal Service, and negative effects on other retailers.

  • The tweet comes the day after a report that Trump is considering action against Amazon.

President Donald Trump on Thursday seemed to confirm reporting that Amazon represents a serious concern for him.

Trump tweeted about the company the day after Axios reported that said the president was considering action over how the online giant is taxed and uses the US Postal Service.

"I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the Election," Trump tweeted. "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!"

According to Axios, people that have met and spoken with Trump say the president is "obsessed" with Amazon and wants to find a way to change the company's tax treatment or go after it on antitrust grounds.

This isn't the first time the president has taken a shot at Amazon on Twitter, even on these particular topics. Trump attacked the company for their USPS use in December, their negative effect on retailers in August, and their tax treatment in July.

In addition, Trump also went after the company's CEO, Jeff Bezos, and his ownership of The Washington Post.

The White House told reporters on Thursday that the president currently does not have a plan to make changes as it comes to Amazon, but is consistently attempting to find ways to "level the playing field" for businesses in the US.

Following the report on Wednesday, Amazon's stock fell roughly 4% and was down almost 1% in pre-market trading on Thursday.
