Trump has condemned Amazon and its CEO Jeff Bezos a few times all through his administration, even wading into the Pentagon’s offering process back in July. Amazon could claim the choice in light of the fact that the president conceivably tilted the playing field in support of Microsoft, however nothing of the sort has happened right now.

While the choice makes certain to be disliked with Amazon as a corporate element, that probably won’t be the main thing Microsoft needs to stress over. Tech organizations have confronted both inward and outer fights for working with the Trump organization. Amazon employees protested their organization’s connections to ICE last year, for instance.

Google experienced something comparable in 2018 as well, with workers fighting its connections to the DoD effectively enough to end the association. Last however absolutely not least, Microsoft employees have raised concerns over military dealings as of now in 2019.

Microsoft may have praised a corporate triumph on Friday, however it’s more likely than not out of the forested areas here.
