Five years after entering the Indian e-commerce industry, Amazon dominates the market alongside domestic retailer Flipkart. But that could change with the impending arrival of Walmart. Vasudevan Sridharan reports.
Donald Trump has renewed his criticism of Amazon, claiming it pays "little or no taxes to state and local governments." The online giant is "putting many thousands of retailers out of business," the president tweeted.
The president has complained that the US Postal Service loses "billions of dollars" delivering packages for Amazon. He also took aim at the internet retailer's boss for his ownership of the influential Washington Post.
