Is Amazon good for America?
President Trump stepped up his attack on Amazon, tweeting that the internet retail giant is hurting the US economy. Amazon's stock value dropped briefly amid investor fears of regulation and recent concerns about other tech behemoths like Facebook, Uber and Tesla.

Trump joins critics who charge that Amazon is costing the US jobs and building a dangerous monopoly that threatens to crush smaller businesses in many industries, while avoiding taxes and regulation.

Supporters point out that Amazon has significantly improved the lives of most consumers, created hundreds of thousands of US jobs, and significantly empowered the many entrepreneurs and artists who sell and distribute on its massive platform.
