Amazon Stockholders Should Sue Donald Trump For Unethically Causing Stock Price To Drop.

I commented on this, ALREADY, yesterday itself, as it happened!



Donald Trump’s ‘no-tax’ claims against Amazon (AMZN) are BOGUS.

As of April 2017 Amazon is collecting Internet sales tax on shipments to ALL states that have a sales tax. That is an irrefutable fact. So for Trump to claim that Amazon has a ‘no-tax monopoly’ is wrong.

But his bellicose rantings is hurting Amazon, the AMZN stock price and Amazon shareholders — and I am one of them. I am NOT happy.

This is wrong.

I would be OK if he was not lying. This is illegal stock price manipulation.

Jeff Bezos should help us get a lawsuit going.

Trump’s gripe is really NOT against Amazon. He, irrationally, is MAD at the ‘Washington Post‘ but rails against Amazon because Jeff Bezos owns both Amazon and ‘The Washington Post’.

Donald Trump Continues His FALSE Narrative That Amazon Does Not Charge Sales Tax.

Today’s, i.e., August 16, 2017 tweet — post Charlottesville, VA ramblings.


July 25, 2017 Tweet.

Monday, July 24, 2017 late night TWEET (around 10pm Eastern). Click to ENLARGE.


This is essentially FAKE NEWS and Trump should know it is FAKE unless he really is even more ill informed and confused than we realize.

As of April 2017 Amazon is collecting Internet sales tax on shipments to ALL states that have a sales tax. That is an irrefutable fact. So for Trump to claim that Amazon has a ‘no-tax monopoly’ is wrong.

Yes, prior to April 2017, Amazon like so many other online retailers did not collect (and handover) sales tax to states that had such a tax. But, Amazon did not have a monopoly and the whole issue of Internet-tax has yet to be fully thrashed out yet.

So, yes, it is true that Amazon in the past was ‘no-tax’.

And yes it is still true that Amazon does NOT force 3rd-party sellers on Amazon from charging sales tax. It probably should to be consistent and avoid Trump having a sliver of an excuse.

Donald Trump Incensed With ‘Washington Post’ Claims (Inaccurately) That Amazon Has ‘No-Tax Monopoly’.

Well, as I said just a few days ago, Trump’s vendetta against the Jeff Bezos owned ‘The Washington Post’ could BEGIN to harm Amazon — though AMZN hit an all time HIGH on Monday!

Donald Trump’s Vicious Vendetta Against ‘Washington Post’ Could Harm Amazon With Antitrust.

by Anura Guruge


Trump’s 3am tweet on Saturday, July 22, 2017 — cutely linking Amazon & Washington Post.


From July 17, 2017 ‘Marketwatch’. Click image to access original.


President Donald Trump DETESTS, really, totally and utterly detests Amazon on three counts — two interrelated. These being:

  1. During his candidacy for President, Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder & Chairman/CEO, was vocal in his opposition for Trump — and like so many he never, for a nanosecond, thought Trump would win.
    ….
  2. Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post in 2013 — and it is one of the newspapers that has been a constant thorn in Trump’s derriere continually breaking damaging and embarrassing stories about the star-crossed Trump administration & family.
    ….
  3. Trump, with his simplistic way of thinking, figures that Amazon is ‘unamerican’ in that it has hurt other American businesses and in his mind, does not pay enough tax (though we know what Trump thinks about paying his own personal taxes).
    …..

In the July 22, 2017 early-morning Tweet he, in print, tied together Amazon and the Washington Post — though they, legally, only have Jeff Bezos as a common factor, neither Amazon or WP having a financial stake in the other.

Among the powerful arsenal of unilateral powers that Trump wields is that of being able to get the Department of Justice (DoJ) to open an antitrust investigation into Amazon. Amazon shares will drop 20% on that news — which will not in itself be disastrous since AMZN is up 37% YTD and 186% over the last three years. Antitrust will not kill Amazon. It will just slow its progress. I started working for IBM (albeit in the UK) in 1974 when it was in the midst of its long drawn out antitrust travails. It was a pain. Just had to double, triple guess all decision and document everything. Amazon will prevail but it will get ‘winged’.

Trump is vindictive as we know and Amazon is an easy target. So this bothers me.
