On Wednesday, August 16, amid catastrophic fallout from his public statement drawing moral equivalence between the Nazis who killed a counter-protestor in Charlottesville this past weekend and the counter-protestors themselves, President Trump posted a tweet denouncing Amazon for the damage it does to "tax paying retailers."
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
Whether or not an attack on Amazon is warranted, it's hard not to notice how quickly Trump was willing to condemn an online shipping service while continuing to insist there was fault on "both sides" of the Charlottesville protests. It seems President Trump is more willing to explore each side of the issue and attempt a complex evaluation when there are white supremacists involved.
