Bezos may not love the President, but he loves his country.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos knows a thing about logistics.  He has taken Amazon a long way from roots as an on-line bookstore.  In remarks last month at the Reagan National Defense Forum, at the Ronald Reagan National Library in Simi Valley, CA, Fox New quotes Bezos,

“… if Big Tech is going to turn their backs on the Department of Defense, this country is in trouble. That's just can't happen.  It's the senior leadership team to say to people, ‘Look, I understand these are emotional issues. That's OK. And we don't have to agree on everything. But this is how we're going to do it. We are going to support the Department of Defense.’"

According to a report from Morgan Stanley released in December of 2019, Amazon Logistics volume is expected to pass UPS by 2022 and FedEx sooner than that.  His opinion matters.
