Trump Blasts Amazon — But His Campaign Used It Regularly For Office Supplies

President Trump has blasted Amazon the last few days, alleging the e-commerce giant is taking advantage of the U.S. Postal Service and failing to pay enough in state and local taxes. Mr. Trump claims his criticisms of Amazon long predate his election. That doesn't seem to have deterred his campaign from...relying on the giant retailer for supplies regularly.

Mr. Trump's presidential campaign spent $158,498.41 in 379 transactions labeled as office supply purchases in 2015 and 2016, according to Federal Election Commission records reviewed by CBS News. The Donald J. Trump for President committee continued to use Amazon well after the election, spending more than $2,000 in 2017, FEC records show.

The White House has insisted Mr. Trump's criticisms of Amazon are strictly policy-related. But Mr. Trump expanded that attack on Saturday morning, claiming, without any evidence , that Amazon is using the Washington Post as a "lobbyist." Mr. Trump said the newspaper should "REGISTER" as such. The president's decision to bring the "fake" Washington Post into the conversation makes it more difficult for the White House to argue that Mr. Trump's concerns are strictly related to policy and to Amazon specifically.

Just about everything that comes out of Trumps mouth is bunk.
