Bezos also owns the Washington Post, whose coverage has been critical of the Trumpet, and who has frequently been a target of barbs by Trump on the news and in the media.
Earlier this week, Amazon’s cloud computing unit, Amazon Web Services, said that it would like to drop off He and the Secretary of Defense Mark Esper at the hearing on the question of whether the president was trying “to screw Amazon’ on the contract.
The procurement process has been delayed due to legal complaints and conflict of interest allegations. Jesper has denied there was a bias, and said that the Pentagon has made his choice freely and fairly, without the influence of the external environment.
