Trump Tweets


Trump hits Amazon and California in Saturday morning tweet rant!

This morning he went after Amazon, since we were on that subject, and California.


While we are on the subject, it is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon. That amounts to Billions of Dollars. The Failing N.Y. Times reports that “the size of the company’s lobbying staff has ballooned,” and that...

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 31, 2018
...does not include the Fake Washington Post, which is used as a “lobbyist” and should so REGISTER. If the P.O. “increased its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.” This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 31, 2018
Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs. Is this really what the great people of California want? @FoxNews

Yep. Something is a bit off alright. Potus. It's sad that daily we must check the veracity of every thing that comes out of his tweet storms in an attempt to find what is true and what he has just made up in in his head.

Goddamn I love our POTUS.

My mom always woke up early Sat and was always on about something. Never failed.

For some strange reason, I've come to love these rants and tweets. The fact that he is appealing to his base and the American people through technology, rightfully so, as a first world economy and most powerful nation on earth, is something I've accepted into my life 😁

It feels sooooooo good.

Good on POTUS for calling out Amazon. Others will resist for the sake of "checking" the anti trump box.

Well, he’s not wrong.

Amazon should at least pay cost to deliver packages. Why should the tax payer supplement their deliveries?

Also, Brown is an idiot so no arguments from me.

Surely it makes sense to peeps that if you kill mom and pops store then you at least have to pay the same taxes and shipping that mom and pop had to pay.

Why should Amazon pay more for shipping when the post office is too damn dumb to charge at a profit?
I have no love for Amazon but the post office is ran by idiots.

It's Easter. Pardon's are meant to convey "mercy" not justice.

You do have a point! Whoever approved that deal should be hung by their hypothetical foreskin!

Let's be clear that the way bezos gets out of paying some taxes is because he claims on taxes that his headquarters is in another country.

so amazon does pay taxes just not all the taxes they should without having a loophole.

the amount is more than any other business gets away with.

you will not find such info by using google thou

Why don't Bezos just buy the USPS.

He's rich enough for it.

And I still think in the 21st century it's not needed anymore.

Once upon a time the USPS was king until competition came along.

This is why I don't like Trump as president. He's not speaking for the US government with these statements. He's attacking commercial companies based on his personal preference while holding office. This is having a direct impact on the stock value. Amazon should sue Trump for the damages.

Okay guy who gave $1.5T tax cut to the 1% that was written by lobbyists calling a newspaper a lobbyist...

Nevermind the evidence of his EPA head literally sleeping in a lobbyist's bed.

Consider it an activity assigned by POTUS.

I look forward to his tweets on saturdays. It sturs up some good drama to watch.

Amazon's market cap is 700 billion.

He could buy both UPS and FEDEX and have 500 billion left over.

LOL.

Certainly possible.

This made me laugh even though its not funny.

I wonder if Trump will call out the arms manufacturers for being war profiteers?

doubt it, but I that would be a beautiful day.
