Trump only pays sales tax in 2 states for his retail site. Amazon pays in 45.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons to complain about Amazon's business practices. Hypocrite Trump chose wrong.

Lying liar can’t help but lie. After Trump’s incessant complaining that Amazon doesn’t pay taxes, (not true,) people…

There are plenty of truthful complaints that Trump could make about Amazon, but truth would be dangerous territory for him and his corporate oligarch pals. Like mega chain Walmart, Amazon pays many workers subpar wages, forcing them to rely on food stamps and other social services. They depend on temp workers, many who are past retirement age, to get through high-volume times like Christmas. They don’t offer these people healthcare, or any kind of security. In 2001 Amazon laid off 850 workers for trying to unionize and uses strong arm tactics to fight any organizers. Amazon gentrified Seattle into a sad polished turd filled with khaki wearing bros, the only ones who can afford the fancy new lofts.
