Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union today, Sen. Bernie Sanders seemed to endorse some of what the president has said of the massive company. Asked by anchor Jake Tapper if he believed Amazon had gotten too big, the independent senator answered in the affirmative.
“Yeah, I do. I do,” Sanders declared. “I think this is — look, this is an issue that has got to be looked at.”
He continued, “What we are seeing all over this country is the decline in retail. We’re seeing this incredibly large company getting involved in almost every area of commerce and I think it is important to take a look at the power and influence that Amazon has.”
