Donald Trump: Amazon ‘Getting Away With Murder’ on Taxes

1 minute read

Donald Trump said the world’s biggest online retailer is “getting away with murder” on its taxes.

In an interview with Fox News on Friday, Trump lashed out at Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who owns the Washington Post. “This [Washington Post] is owned as a toy by Jeff Bezos, who controls Amazon,” the presumptive Republican nominee said. “Amazon is getting away with murder tax-wise. He’s using the Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don’t tax Amazon like they should be taxed.”

“He’s got a huge antitrust problem because he’s controlling so much, Amazon is controlling so much of what they are doing,” Trump continued.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
