The U.S. President has criticized Amazon, wrote in his Twitter that the company is hurting other retailers and its actions lead to the loss of jobs in the United States.
Amazon is doing great damage to tax paying retailers. Towns, cities and states throughout the U. S. are being hurt — many jobs being lost!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2017
“Amazon brings great damage to retailers who pay taxes. Suffer from small and large cities and States across the U.S. — disappears a lot of jobs!”
After that tweet Amazon shares collapsed, which led to a reduction in the company’s capitalization by about six billion dollars in a few minutes.
