Amazon did not immediately respond to an AFP query on the Trump comments.
Stifel says Amazon collects sales tax on its owned inventory in all 45 states that have a state sales tax and Washington, D.C.; believes Trump's tax comments, which really refer to third party merchants, "is not a new issue" and actually favorably positions Amazon relative to its peers.
