Business group criticises attacks

WASHINGTON – Following attacks by President Donald Trump on Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), the US Chamber of Commerce criticised attacks by government officials against American companies.

“It’s inappropriate for government officials to use their position to attack an American company,” said Neil Bradley, executive vice president and chief policy officer for the Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s largest business group.

“The US economy is the world’s most powerful because it embraces the free enterprise system and the rule of law, whereby policy matters are handled through recognised policymaking processes.

The record is clear: Deviating from those processes undermines economic growth and job creation.”
