    What people are totally missing is that Amazon is the world's largest fence of stolen property.  They've created a market for shoplifters and employee theft.  No legitimate company can compete with the prices thieves charge.  High volume sellers should have to prove where they get their merchandise.

    I appreciate the fact check, but the narration couldn't be more unintelligible and annoying.

    I really don't like Trump and he is going after Amazon for the wrong reasons and Yes Amazon collected taxes from sales is correct however after subsidies and incentives to build and move plants to new cities plus write offs and how little they paid in federal taxes because of loopholes Amazon paid Nearly NO effective FEDERAL taxes and very low state level of taxes once you add it all up.

    I live in a small city. Retailers offer little choice and are closing. So I go online. Amazon is only one of thousands of sellers online.

    Trump paid Stormy Daniels more than he has paid the IRS. Him calling out anyone on taxes is a joke. Let him make his own tax records public before he points his little fat finger ant others.

    The Irony when donny hasn't payed his taxes in 20 years

    Coming from a guy who don't disclose his tax returns. Spank the spanky and ask for it, Americans!

    Trump is right Amazon needs to be restrained…

  18. Granny Loca April 1, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Wapo fact checking their boss is absurd.

    Comrade Spanky McBonespurs pays taxes bigly.

    The President should be sued from attacking individuals and businesses. (like the "failing New York Times…etc..)

    Smart People know the true Facts of this Trump Crap of Lies…

  22. Wendy Alexander April 1, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Trump is after Amazon because of the Washington Post owner. The Post Office has been wasting money too. What about all the fancy houses it owns or employees owns. They refuse to make cheaper packaging and don't stand up to scrutiny. 3 Pinochios!? I'd give him 11!

  23. James Oxford April 1, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos. Just a tiny conflict of interest in this report.
