Amazon Going After Trump Over Billion Dollar Pentagon Contract
Amazon.com Inc. wants President Trump to testify in the trial over the billion-dollar Pentagon contract, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Last year, the Pentagon awarded a massive cloud-computing contract to Amazon rival Microsoft Corp. Amazon's concern with President Trump claims that his bias against Jeff Bezos is part of the reason Microsoft was awarded the contract over them.
Amazon stated, that President Trump “made crystal clear—both to the public at large, and by clear implication to senior [Pentagon] officials (including his political appointees)—that he did not want his administration to award the contract to [Amazon].”
The Pentagon previously stated that the “selection decision was made by an expert team of career public servants and military officers from across the Department of Defense and in accordance with DOD’s normal source-selection process.”
