Recently, U.S. President Trump sent a text on Twitter to speak to Amazon. He called on the United States Postal Service to increase the delivery price of Amazon E-Commerce to make up for the cost.
"Why is the united States Post Office, which is losing many billions of dpllars a year, while charging Amazon and others so little to deliver their packages, making Amazon richer and the Post Office dumber and poorer? Should be charging Much more！."
Trump's bombardment also played an "immediate" effect, the same day, Amazon shares fell nearly 1%.
Why does he say that? We thought that the United States post office delivery about 62% of the parcels for Amazon. According to the calculation of current shopping season, the United States post office daily deliver about 3.5 to 4 million packages for Amazon. Despite the contracting of such a large business, the United States postal service is still in the state of being unable to make ends meet.
If the post office package shipping really rose because such words of Trump, maybe the FBA fee will rise a little more!
In fact, Trump and Amazon boss Bezos' resentment is not the only one.
As early as Trump's campaign for the presidency, he lashed out at Jeff Bezos, saying he had taken advantage of the acquisition of The Washington Post to avoid tax, meanwhile, he also claiming that Bezos mades trade monopoly; Trump once said : "If I became president, you (Amazon) will be in trouble during my tenure!"
In June of this year, Trump also published an article and criticized the media for writing "fake news," including a series of media such as The New York Times and the Washington Post. The boss of the Washington Post is exactly Bezos.
In August, Trump again post an article in Twitter to blame Amazon for mak Americans lose their jobs.
Trump also said the Amazon tax issues, accusing the tax Amazon pay and its benefits do not match seriously. However, Amazon this year also began to levy taxes in the state of consumption tax, the move is to responded to Trump.
E-commerce giant Amazon spent 13.7 billion US dollars in the acquisition of Whole Foods Supermarket was also bombared by Trump.
The responce of Amazon
Amazon launched a toilet paper which is full of Trump tweets in August.
On the morning of the sale of the product, the warm welcomed "Trump tweezers toilet paper "has been sold out of stock, the result is 0.
Tweets printed on toilet paper include tweets before and after Trump's presidential election. For example, in 2013, "What I am saying is stay out of Syria."
"The electoral college is a disaster for democracy."
2014, "Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?"
After Trump called the Washington Post the "false news" and claimed that Bezos used the newspaper to allow Amazon to evade higher taxes, the Washington Post changed its slogan to "Democracy Dies in Darkness ", the slogan was seen outside as a powerful response to Trump.
