President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to decry online uber-retailer Amazon for hurting "towns, cities and states" via its mammoth and successful business practices.

Amazon is owned by Jeff Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post.

It's not the first time Trump has taken aim at Amazon for not paying taxes.

In June, the president tweeted that Bezos only owns the Post in an effort to dodge paying "internet taxes."

Trump's latest blast at Amazon after the Post published an editorial about the president's latest controversial remarks on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend. Titled "The nation can only weep," which began:

"Tuesday was  great day for David Duke and racists everywhere. The president of the United States all but declared that he has their backs."
