The president also retweeted a series of posts from Republican politico Charlie Kirk, executive director of Turning Point USA, a conservative political organization for college students. Kirk appeared on Fox Business channel Dec. 22, saying that Trump's accomplishments in his first year have been "truly historic."
Departing from his list of accomplishments, the president lashed out
against the Postal Service.
The president's charge that Amazon received special treatment from the Postal Service was debated over the summer in the pages of The Wall Street Journal. "An April analysis from Citigroup estimates that if costs were fairly allocated, on average parcels would cost $1.46 more to deliver,"
Josh Sandbulte, a money manager, wrote in an op-ed. "It is as if every Amazon box comes with a dollar or two stapled to the packing slip—a gift card from Uncle Sam."
The president has attacked the company in the past for harming retailers, and because CEO Jeff Bezos also owns The Washington Post.
In July, the president posted a message to his Twitter account asking: "Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?"
Amazon shares opened lower after the president's missive.
Shortly after the tweets, Trump went to his golf club in Palm Beach, Florida.
