President Donald Trump is again targeting Amazon to "use" the US Postal Service as a "delivery boy", increasing the potential for antitrust claims against the company.
"The Amazon Washington Post has gone crazy since they lost the Internet Tax Case two months ago to the US Supreme Court. Next comes the US Post Office, which they charge for a fraction of the actual cost of delivery use a large percentage of their packages … "Trump Tweeted Monday  He added," … The Washington Post is, in my opinion, nothing more than an expensive lobbyist for Amazon, it is used as protection against antitrust claims many consider necessary? "  The Supreme Court ruled in June that states have the right to collect millions of dollars in potential sales through internet sales – a decision that left Amazon largely untouched.
Trump has long called for higher taxes on Amazon, saying in January that the company's dominance harms American retailers. Amazon already levies sales tax on directly sold products in every state, accounting for about half of all units sold at its site.
Trump has repeatedly urged the company because of its in his view unfair price structure at the post office urged operation. In April, Trump signed an executive order to set up a task force to deal with the operations and finances of the USPS and propose reforms.
