Amazon Web Services lost the contract to Microsoft's Azure cloud business in October, a decision that surprised many industry experts given Amazon's leadership in the industry. Amazon filed a suit with the US Court of Federal Claims contesting the decision, arguing that it was politically motivated by President Donald Trump's dislike of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post, which Bezos owns.

There's no evidence that trump interfered in the contract process.

OK, maybe he did, but that happens all the time. Everyone does it.

OK, maybe it's unprecedented, but he was just trying to fight corruption.

Ok, maybe he just did it for personal reasons, but because he believes he is the best person to lead the country,his enemies are the enemies if the country, and he can't break the law.
