President Trump is to have dinner with his biggest Silicon Valley backer, Peter Thiel, DailyMail.com has confirmed.
The dinner, a source close to Thiel said, will be a strategy session on how the president might be able to regulate Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Google.
Trump has been fixated on Amazon as of late, blasting the online retailer again from the White House on Tuesday.
President Trump is expected to get advice from billionaire Peter Thiel on how to regulate the top tech companies that include Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple.
“Amazon’s gonna have to pay much more money to the Post Office. There’s no doubt about that.”
Trump charged the U.S. Post Office is “losing billions of dollars” all because it delivers packages for Amazon at below cost “and that’s not fair”.
Behind-the-scenes, a source told Axios that Trump is “obsessed with Amazon”.
“He’s wondered aloud if there may be any way to go after Amazon with antitrust or competition law,” a source told the publication.
Axios pointed out that the president ‘would love to clip CEO Jeff Bezos’ wings,’ but he doesn’t have a plan to do so. With billionaire Thiel’s advice, that could change.
