Amazon said it wanted to challenge Microsoft’s $10 billion contract with the U.S. Department of Defense. This was reported by CNN on Thursday, November 14, citing a representative of the company.
It is noted that in late October, Microsoft won a tender from the Pentagon to provide $10 billion in remote computing services over 10 years. Amazon found that the decision was biased and was going to challenge it in court.
The channel notes that US President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the head of Amazon Jeff Bezos, who owns The Washington Post.
In addition, according to media reports, Trump privately in 2018 expressed a desire to grant a lucrative contract to any other company except Amazon.
On October 25, it was reported that the fortune of the world’s richest man, Amazon technology company founder Jeff Bezos decreased by almost $7 billion per day due to investor dissatisfaction with the company’s reporting for the third quarter.
