Why Trump is Right About Amazon

Some conservatives call Amazon an amazing success story. Trump disagrees. And he’s right.

Amazon is a massive wrecking machine consuming American retail. It’s looting the economy and leaving behind rubble. And the consolidation of the internet under Amazon and Google isn’t just destroying businesses, it’s wiping out political and personal freedom.

When Amazon or Google decide to ban a category of items for political reasons, that’s it. The sheer monopolistic power means that there is little recourse. And as Amazon gorges itself on more of the retail sector, the opportunities shrink.

We’re approaching a point where a handful of corporations are no longer just an economic threat, but a political threat because they can control what appears on the internet.
