President Donald Trump doubled down on his attacks on Amazon on Thursday, saying "I'm going to study" whether his administration should take action against the online retailing giant because "the post office is not doing well with Amazon."
"We're going to see what happens," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One after speaking at a roundtable on tax-reform in West Virginia. "The playing field has to be level for everybody.
"I'm going to study it," he added. "We're going to take a look at that."
Earlier Thursday, Trump took to Twitter to bash The Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, as "fake news" and calling it the company's "chief lobbyist."
In addition, President Trump reiterated his support for embattled EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, telling reporters "I think he's done a fantastic job.
"He's a fantastic person.
"I just left coal and energy country," he said. "They love Scott Pruitt.
"They feel strongly and love him."
Pruitt is facing allegations he violated ethics laws by renting a room for $50 a night in a condo linked to an energy lobbyist, by spending taxpayer money to fly in first class or business class and by granting two EPA officials huge pay raises despite White House opposition.
Pruitt has denied wrongdoing, telling Fox News on Thursday he only learned of the pay raises this week and immediately stopped them.
