Trump escalates attack on Amazon, focusing on tax, shipping

But what we know is, Trump doesn't like Amazon founder owning Washington Post.

Only two days after attacking Amazon's business practices via Twitter, President Donald Trump is at it again. The company's stock had a trading volume of 2,568,550 shares, compared to its average volume of 5,887,766.

Citigroup also said that the true cost of shipping packages for the USPS is about 50 per cent higher than its current rates, leading some editorial writers to conclude that Amazon was receiving the type of subsidy cited in Mr Trump's tweet last Thursday. As soon as the report from Axios went viral, Amazon lost its shares as much as 7.4%. Mountain Capital Investment Advisors Inc bought a new position in shares of Amazon.com in the second quarter worth approximately $121,000.

According to the sources it is reported that Trump is unable to quit thinking about the online retailer, Amazon. Wolfe Research upgraded Amazon.com from a "peer perform" rating to an "outperform" rating in a report on Friday, February 23rd.

Wall Street was already anxious about Washington cracking down on tech giants after Facebook's user data crisis. Facebook's stock has plummeted about 20% since February 1. Federal regulators who review contracts made by USPS have not raised any issues or concerns it has with Amazon.

It's true that a growing number of retail chains have closed stores, scaled back operations or filed for bankruptcy reorganization in recent years, partly due to their inability to keep pace with consumers' shift toward more Internet shopping.

Reports emerged last week that President Trump has his sights set on Amazon.com, Inc. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that "we have no announcements and no specific policies or actions that we're now pushing forward or considering".

A White House spokeswoman said on Thursday the administration has no Amazon-related action at this time. That amounts to Billions of Dollars.

"The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!"

(NASDAQ:AMZN) last announced its quarterly earnings data on Thursday, February 1st.

Pushing politics aside, it is valid that Amazon has negatively impacted the retail sector and in fact creates havoc whenever it announces a new venture in a business. "Towns, cities and states throughout the USA are being hurt - many jobs being lost!"

When retailers ship goods to states where they don't have a physical presence, they do not have to charge sales tax.

The U.S. General Accounting Office said last November it estimated that state and local governments could have gained up to $13 billion in 2017 "if states were given authority to require sales tax collection from all remote sellers". Congress could pass legislation making online sales taxes more uniform.

Amazon has been criticised for attempting to skirt state sales taxes, but since April past year it has voluntarily collected state sales tax on items it sells direct to customers in all 45 states that have one.

"It is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon".

It would cost Amazon 1.46 USA dollars more to ship an average package through USPS if costs were "fairly allocated", according to a Citigroup analysis released a year ago.

Rather, the Postal Service has enjoyed double-digit increases in revenue from delivering packages, but that hasn't been enough to offset pension and health care costs as well as declines in first-class letters and marketing mail, The Associated Press reported.
