Trump Lashes out in Tweetstorm Over SCOTUS Decision, Twitter Users Erupt

In a blow to consumers, the Supreme Court has ruled that states can require sales tax on purchases made online. As expected, Donald Trump was quick to give his thoughts.

Big Supreme Court win on internet sales tax - about time! Big victory for fairness and for our country. Great victory for consumers and retailers.

Whether or not to add an additional tax on internet sales has been an ongoing debate over the years as online shopping has become more popular. As reported by NBC News in a 5-4 decision made on Thursday, the Supreme Ruled that states can now require internet retailers to collect sales taxes. This has angered many who do the majority of their shopping online, but Donald Trump was pleased.


"Big Supreme Court win on internet sales tax - about time!" Donald Trump tweeted out on June 21. "Big victory for fairness and for our country," he wrote, while adding "Great victory for consumers and retailers." Trump's tweet didn't go over well with many on social media as they decided to hit back on his Twitter post.

"You’re so damn jealous of Jeff Bezos. Is it just because he’s a real billionaire?" Greg Shugat tweeted back. "Our dumbass POTUS cheering higher taxes on the goods we buy. Resign already," another tweet added.

"Since you deporting mfs why don't you go ahead and have you wife deported too," an additional tweet read. "Thanks for making us all have to pay more sales tax now. You’re a real “people’s leader," a follow-up tweet went on to read.

As expected, the rift between those who support Donald Trump and those who oppose him continues to be a hot button issue. With the midterm elections just a few months away, only time will tell if Trump's presidency will be a positive or negative for Republicans as they look to hold on to the majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

      Not a big deal because 38 million people in CA already pay those Internet Taxes.

      If there is a tax, we have in CA.

      I don't agree with Trump on this but it is fair that everyone or no one in the country pays it.

      The problem is what services are the states giving the consumers that venture into the Internet. In a brick and mortar store the state and local governments give police and fire protection.

      What do that states give on the Internet, Nothing!
