Trump Threatens Antitrust Lawsuit Against Amazon

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump is again taking aim at Amazon for “using” the U.S. Postal Service as its “delivery boy,” raising the possibility of bringing antitrust claims against the company.

Trump railed against the e-retailer and the newspaper — both owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos — in a series of tweets Monday morning, claiming the newspaper has “gone crazy” against Trump in the months since Amazon “lost the Internet Tax Case in the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Shares of Amazon fell nearly 2 percent in early trading following the President’s tweets. The Supreme Court ruled in June that states have the right to collect potentially billions of dollars in taxes from internet sales — a decision that left Amazon largely unaffected.
