Donald Trump’s threat against Amazon and the Washington Post comes a day after reporter David Fahrenthold broke the fake Time magazine cover story about Trump on a bogus March 1, 2009, magazine cover hanging on the walls at four of his golf clubs.

Trump tweeted: “The #, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!”

Um, Donald Trump is not the person to talk about taxes, since he has skirted the law and paid little or nothing. By the way, Amazon already collects sales taxes in the 50 states, so don’t believe the nonsense from the loudmouth bully.
A New Jersey newspaper also found the fake Time magazine cover hanging inside Trump’s Bedminister club too. Time Inc. has since demanded that Trump Organization remove the bogus covers.

Reaction on Twitter to Trump’s attack on the Washington Post after fake Time cover story:
Lots could be said about this but most notable may be Trump's collapsing coherence & literacy. He's losing his English. https://t.co/rjNcelvYQu

What would you think if you saw a leader of another country threatening a media outlet's owner with tax increases after critical coverage? https://t.co/tUm66OrS9H

I love that this reckless call for policy change is the result of him getting caught photoshopping himself onto a TIME cover. https://t.co/jTGCsAexqW
