Capitol Hill wants Facebook’s blood, but President Trump isn’t interested. Instead, the tech behemoth Trump wants to go after is Amazon, according to five sources who’ve discussed it with him. “He’s obsessed with Amazon,” a source said. “Obsessed.” axios.com/trump-regulati…
2/ “Trump tells people Amazon has gotten a free ride from taxpayers and cushy treatment from the U.S. Postal Service.” 🧐
3/ ““The whole post office thing, that's very much a perception he has,” another source said. “It's been explained to him in multiple meetings that his perception is inaccurate and that the post office actually makes a ton of money from Amazon."”
4/ Axios' Ina Fried notes: The Postal Service actually added delivery on Sunday in some cities because Amazon made it worthwhile. 😞😒
5/ Meanwhile, Wall St is telling Trump not to start a trade war and to lay off Amazon.... money.cnn.com/2018/04/02/inv…
6/ And, as @DrDenaGrayson has pointed out, Trump’s behavior towards Jeff Bezos is the way dictators behave: shaving off Bezos’ personal stock value bc he hates Bezos-owned Washington Post’s coverage of him 😖
7/ “Trump never talks about Mark Zuckerberg or Facebook: He isn’t tuned in to the debate over how they handle people’s data, and thinks the Russia story is a hoax, sources say.” So Russia threat/collusion w Facebook = scam & Amazon = bad to Trump bc he hates Wapo coverage 🤯
8/ Trump’s idea of America is 1950’s Disneyland fakery - "Trump told Axios last year he doesn’t mind Facebook because it helps him reach his audience. He's an old-school businessman who sees the world in terms of tangible assets: real estate, physical mail delivery, Main Street”
9/ “One warning sign for Facebook: Vice President Mike Pence is concerned about Facebook and Google, according to a source with direct knowledge.” Fine. But I’m not buying into this Pence-as-hero narrative people around Pence are pushing (we all know why)
10/ Remember, Pence is in DEEP trouble. As head of Trump transition team, he knowingly allowed Flynn to become NatSec Head... KNOWING Flynn was massively compromised. Pence will be more like a Sprio Agnew situation. salon.com/2017/06/16/is-…
11/ Remember two things when it comes to Pence: he has hired his own attorneys re Mueller ANND - Paul Manafort chose him. Chris Christie was Trump’s pick for VP. Manafort changed that. (Links in tweet link above)... anyway, stay woke, everyone! 😎
12/ and this new article from Fortune explains how Trump’s net worth may have decreased by as much as $400 Million due to perceived headway Amazon has made... h/t @colbymommy
