Update (4/2/2018 10 am ET): With Amazon shares already heading lower thanks to Trump’s weekend twitter thrashing, the president has again chimed in Monday morning, tripling down on his recent threatening rhetoric toward the e-commerce giant.

According to Trump, “only fools, or worse, are saying that our money losing Post Office makes money with Amazon. THEY LOSE A FORTUNE, and this will be changed.”

Amazon shares were down more than 3.5% as the price of a single share slipped below the $1,400 level.

President Trump’s obsession and escalating feud with Jeff Bezos, and bringing Amazon to heel before it destroys what’s left of America’s crumbling brick-and-mortar retail industry, was on display Saturday morning when he fired off a series of angry tweets claiming the Bezos-owned Washington Post should register as a lobbyist and that the Post Office should jack up its parcel rates to stick it to Amazon.

“While we are on the subject, it is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon,” Trump tweeted.

“That amounts to Billions of Dollars. The Failing N.Y. Times reports that ‘the size of the company’s lobbying staff has ballooned,’ and that does not include the Fake Washington Post, which is used as a ‘lobbyist’ and should so REGISTER. If the P.O. ‘increased its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.’ This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!”
