In his newest attack on Jeff Bezos, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says the Amazon chief executive and Washington Post owner has "a huge antitrust problem."

Trump has taken on Bezos before, but on Fox News' "Hannity" show on Thursday he accused Bezos of anticompetitive business practices. The attack on one of the technology industry's biggest powers comes as Post investigative reporters dig into Trump's past for a forthcoming book.

"He's got a huge antitrust problem because he's controlling so much. He bought the Washington Post for practically nothing. He's using it as a tool for political power against me and other people. We can't let him get away with it," Trump said. "Amazon is getting away with murder, tax-wise. He's using the Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don't tax Amazon like they should be taxed."

Amazon and the Washington Post didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
