Re: Where's a Bezos fine when you need it?
Many of the tweets are nothing more than bluster. He's just keeping his name out there, even when a tweet one day is the opposite of one another day (would=wouldn't?).

Re: EU and Google
Are the DoJ antitrust officials elected? Not as far as I know.

EU and Google
The EU folks in Brussels behave like dictators and many of their rulings are arbitrary. Typically, its a bunch of bureaucrats led by a commissioner sitting in a fancy office in Brussels who decides these fines. It is not a democratic system.

For example, if they are fining Google for bundling chrome browser with Android, how about imposing a fine on Apple for bundling the safari browser on iphones?

Well what does that actually mean? They get saved for the eventual presidential library. He's not a king, these aren't some kind of royal proclamations.

Re: Where's a Bezos fine when you need it?
According to the DOJ, Trump's tweets are official statements of the president:

No, it's just a platform for his obnoxious, contradictory statements.

Re: Where's a Bezos fine when you need it?
Well Twitter isn't policy, or an executive order, so we'll see if this actually amounts to anything.

Trump would no doubt have been much happier with an Amazon fine. The EU wouldn't have seemed quite as bad then.

Funny that Trump is now describing Google as one of America's "great companies." They might be on the same page on this issue, but you cannot envisage someone like Sergey Brin, an outspoken critic of Trump's immigration policy, ever describing Trump as one of America's great presidents.
