Trump reportedly tried to stop Amazon from winning a $10 billion cloud deal, but experts say Microsoft won on its own merits (AMZN, MSFT)

President Trump has been a vocal critic of Amazon, reportedly going as far as to try and prevent Amazon Web Services from winning the Pentagon's $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract.

However, experts say that the Trump factor in the JEDI decision is overrated, and that Microsoft won the deal on its...
