The president unleashed a tweet against the online shopping giant (whose owner just happens to own the Trump-critical paper Washington Post) saying the company is “doing great damage to tax paying retailers” and responsible for jobs being lost.

Amazon is doing great damage to tax paying retailers. Towns, cities and states throughout the U.S. are being hurt – many jobs being lost!
