Trump campaign spent $158K with Amazon in 379 transactions labeled as 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.

But Mr. Trump's presidential campaign relied on Amazon for office supplies regularly, spending $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. In the average transaction, Mr. Trump's campaign spent $418.20, and the most the campaign spent in a single transaction was $3,890. 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.

1. There are currently 300+ listings on Amazon for Ivanka Trump shoes and

270+ for Donald Trump neckties. Over 100,000 listings if you just search "Trump." Boo hoo, Don. Boo hoo.

2. When does Jeff Bezos start his Twitter campaign against Cheeto?

I can't wait for that.

6. Jeff Bezos seems like mostly like an ordinary dude that kind of happened into his business

I googled his name and aside from a few quirks, it sounds like he could be right at home as an ordinary person. My guess is he is the exact opposite of a guy like 45. Reading some of the stories about Jeff Bezos I would doubt he will be involved in any tit for tat.

5. Trump just says whatever

he feels like whenever he wants to. Most of the time he just makes crap up and often says the opposite later on.
