Amazon’s Deep Dark Secret Gets Brought To Light By President Trump – They’ve Been Ripping You Off!

Trump exposed the online shopping service, Amazon, for using The Washington Post as a mouthpiece. Trump also continues to fight for the fair treatment of the United States Postal Services. Who currently are being taken advantage of by the big box online store.

“While we are on the subject, it is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon. That amounts to Billions of Dollars. The Failing N.Y. Times reports that “the size of the company’s lobbying staff has ballooned,” and that…” – Trump tweeted.

According to The Washington Examiner, A 2017 Citigroup analysis said the Post Office should charge $1.46 more per packages sent by Amazon and other companies that qualify for bulk-mail rates. The Post Office since 2013 also has delivered Amazon shipments on Sunday, but the precise details of the arrangement are not public.

Trump continued in a separate tweet:

“…does not include the Fake Washington Post, which is used as a “lobbyist” and should so REGISTER. If the P.O. “increased its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.” This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!”

As Reported By Time:

Trump isn’t pulling the notion out of thin air. For many years, brick-and-mortar retailers complained that Amazon and other e-commerce sites rose to prominence in part because they enjoyed an unfair business advantage over local stores as a result of a legal loophole which allows these websites, in certain circumstances, to avoid collecting state and local sales tax on most purchases.

As of this year, however, that advantage is largely a thing of the past, at least for Amazon. The site now collects sales tax for purchases made directly from Amazon in all states that have a sales tax. One exception remains. Items sold from third-party sellers on Amazon—which may account for half of all sales on the site—are frequently not subject to sales tax.

Is that because Trump has been on them to do the right thing since the beginning of his presidency?
