Donald trump, accuses the world’s third largest e-commerce company, Amazon, of ripping off the US Postal Service. "On average, the US Post Office would have to bear a loss of $1.50 (£1.07) each time it delivers a package for Amazon," the President tweeted. However, the retail giant followers are in disagreement.

Trump calls Washington Post a ‘lobbyist’ for Amazon

Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, also owns the Washington Post. Trump finds the stories published in the Post unpalatable.

Similar to the mainstream media, the Post has covered stories such as the one about the ongoing investigation being carried out by Robert Mueller into links between Russia and Trump electoral campaign.

It also reported the President’s so-called hush-hush affair with pornographic star Stormy Daniels.

Saturday’s issue features how three separate legal teams are inspecting the accounts of the Trump Organization.

Bezos and the Post have debunked Trump's lobbyist claims before. They proclaimed that the Amazon owner has nothing to do with the journalistic decisions of the Washington Post.

Trump might push to curtail Amazon's powers

Trump might coerce the anti-trust laws to curtail Amazon's powers. The share price of Amazon fell in the recent days following Trump’s allegations.

"In its contract with the e-commerce company, the US Post Office was facing losses of billions of dollars," tweeted the President.

"The P.O. rip-off must stop. Amazon’s delivery charges would upsurge by $2.6 billion if the USPS increased the rates of its package. Amazon should compensate the actual costs and taxes now," continued Trump quoting the New York Times.

He also has cited some analysis by the Wall Street and argues that the calculations carried by the Postal Service are outdated.

There are no remarks made by Bezos yet

Nevertheless, Amazon supporters say that the Postal Regulatory Commission has found the P.O. to be making a profit from its contract with Amazon. Marketing mail and letters comprise approximately 66 percent of postal service’s revenue.

It is bizarre for a president to pick one company like Amazon and lash out with such malicious attacks, says Joe Lynam, a business correspondent of BBC. Networks of Trump have also been pushing him to protect the commercial property sector from digital retail stores as shopping malls are closing and rents are falling out, adds a BBC correspondent.
