Trump asks if The Washington Post is an Amazon 'lobbyist weapon'

At Fox News

President Trump took to Twitter late Monday to call out The Washington Post and ask if the paper is being used as a 'lobbyist weapon' for internet giant Amazon.
“Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?” Trump tweeted.
Billionaire Jeff Bezos owns the paper and is the founder of Amazon.

Amazon.com collects state sales taxes in all 45 states with a sales tax and the District of Columbia, according to their website. State governments have sought to capture sales taxes lost to internet retailers, though they have struggled with a 1992 Supreme Court ruling that retailers must have a physical presence in a state before officials can make them collect sales tax.
