TRUMP ACCUSES AMAZON OF HURTING TAX-PAYING RETAILERS, $5.7 BILLION WIPED OFF VALUE

Posted on Updated on

  • Trump tweeted: “Amazon is doing great damage to tax paying retailers”
  • Jeff Bezos owns anti-Trump The Washington Post
  • Amazon’s shares lost 1.2 per cent of their value in pre-market trading after Mr Trump’s comments.

 

Donald Trump wiped around $5.7bn dollars off the stock market valuation of Amazon in less than two hours on Wednesday, with a tweet attacking the online retail giant for “doing great damage to tax paying retailers”.

Amazon’s shares lost 1.2 per cent of their value in pre-market trading after Mr Trump’s comments.

 

The President tweeted: “Amazon is doing great damage to tax paying retailers. Towns, cities and states throughout the US are being hurt – many jobs being lost!”

Mr Trump has previously criticised Amazon and the Washington Post, owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, for its coverage. In June, Mr Trump tweeted: “AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes“.

In December 2015, Mr Trump accused Mr Bezos of using the Washington Post as a tax shelter to reduce Amazon’s tax bill. Mr Trump claimed that Amazon’s stock would “crumble like a paper bag” if it could not use this arrangement.

Mr. Bezos owns the Washington Post via a holding company which is not linked to Amazon.

CIA AND WASHINGTON POST CONNECTION THRU OWNER JEFF BEZOS: WHY THEIR $600 MILLION DEAL SHOULD BE DISCLOSED WHENEVER IT REPORTS ON THE AGENCY

Posted on Updated on

In 2013 CIA awarded $600 million deal to Amazon, whose founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is owner of Washington Post. Critics charge that the Post needs to disclose its CIA link whenever it reports on the agency, just like what it did recently  with reports that secret CIA assessment shows Russia hacked election in order to help Trump win. But this assessment is not being shared by other intelligence agencies like the FBI because of lack of intel proof, making it suspicious why Washington Post created a CIA headline knowing the rest of intel communities are not in favor of their ‘secret assessment.’ Washington Post campaigned against Trump the way CNN did their part via television.

Meanwhile, a petition campaign was launched related to news that Amazon, under the Post’s new owner, Jeff Bezos, recently secured a $600 million contract from the CIA. That’s at least twice what Bezos paid for the Post this year. Bezos recently disclosed that the company’s Web-services business is building a “private cloud” for the CIA to use for its data needs.

Critics charge that, at a minimum, the Post needs to disclose its CIA link whenever it reports on the agency. Over 15,000 have signed the petition this week hosted by RootsAction.

FBI REFUTES CIA NEWS ON RUSSIA HACKING HILLARY’S EMAILS AND GIVING THEM TO WIKILEAKS IN ORDER TO HELP TRUMP WIN

The Washington Post published a report this weekend that claims the CIA has found that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency.

The claim is only from CIA while 16 other intel agencies disagree with them.

The Russian hacking meme was reported as not true in October by  The New York Times :

For much of the summer, the F.B.I. pursued a widening investigation into a Russian role in the American presidential campaign. Agents scrutinized advisers close to Donald J. Trump, looked for financial connections with Russian financial figures, searched for those involved in hacking the computers of Democrats, and even chased a lead — which they ultimately came to doubt — about a possible secret channel of email communication from the Trump Organization to a Russian bank.

Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.

Hillary Clinton’s supporters, angry over what they regard as a lack of scrutiny of Mr. Trump by law enforcement officials, pushed for these investigations. In recent days they have also demanded that James B. Comey, the director of the F.B.I., discuss them publicly, as he did last week when he announced that a new batch of emails possibly connected to Mrs. Clinton had been discovered.
