Trump lashes out at Amazon on Twitter: 4 things to know

President Donald Trump attacked Amazon in a tweet March 29, a day after an Axios report said he wants to "go after" the company for alleged antitrust violations, according to CNBC.

Here are four things to know.

1. Amazon's stock dipped following the Axios report on March 28. Amazon shares began to recover and were up as much as 1.6 percent in premarket March 29 before the president's tweet.

2. "I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the election," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Unlike others, they pay little or no taxes to state & local governments, use our postal system as their delivery boy (causing tremendous loss to the U.S.), and are putting many thousands of retailers out of business!"

3. Amazon shares fell 2.6 percent after the market opened March 29, according to CNBC.

4. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters March 28 there were "no announcements and no specific policies or actions that we're currently pushing forward" regarding Amazon, according to the report.
