the dignity of your office. in south carolina, senator lindsey graham said mr. president, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with american politics, not the greatest of america. >> you have been elected to serve for four years. we need to ask you questions. you need to provide answers and what you did is inflammatory to people all over the country who looked at this. the president and everybody out here, everyone in the room, they are trying to do their job. >> that was a local reporter who made headlines after a heated exchange with deputy white house spokesperson, sarah huckabee sanders. he is the executive editor of the montgomery county sentinel and spoke to bruce johnson off script last night. he said he was upset with the ck
12:07 pm
said the white house was being dishonest. >> we showed them respect and they showed us no respect and that has to change. >> i have a healthy respect for the things they do. sean spicer and sarah have presented things to the media that are very valuable and have been good about some things but every day when the president tweets we are fake media and enemies of the people, it rankles after a while. >> they said the biggest thing for frustration is the questions about the white house policy that are not getting answered. today, part of president donald trump's travel ban will go into effect after a unanimous ruling early the week came down from the supreme court. hilary lane was at dulles international and has everything you need to know. >> reporter: at dulles international, this is where international travelers arrive and you will see far less people coming from six to dominantly muslim countries for the next three months.

12:09 pm
internet tax? secondly, is the company dodging these taxes? here's evan koslof. >> reporter: our team spoke with three people. an economist from moody's analytics, the tax foundation, a think tank and the urban institute. the first focus was on whether or not there is something called the internet tax. all three said no business is taxed just for using the internet. however, president donald trump may have said that amazon is not collecting state sales tax and that has been a contentious issue because the state wants that revenue but all three of the experts we spoke with along with the website that shows the company does collect sales taxes in 45 states that have them, there is a quote that said, in the last two years, states have been more aggressive in getting amazon, given size and e-commerce
12:10 pm
meanwhile, amazon does not collect them in states that don't have them. those are in oregon, delaware and new hampshire and we decided to give this a try. someone from our team ordered a book online and got this receipt. it is marked that there is a sales tax and we are getting this interesting because there was a box spring cover online and you can see there is no sales tax applied. amazon does business with third party sellers and doesn't necessarily charge taxes for those vendors. amazon set all the sales tax information for those sellers is found in the shipping and tax information section. that to the question, was the president right? for the most part, no. amazon is paying sales tax on most purchases online and our investigation did find some purchases for third-party vendors where sales taxes are not connected and
