2. And this is why Gates enables and supported Trump, and the criminals he surrounds himself with.

"The JEDI contract, worth up to $10 billion over 10 years, was awarded to Microsoft in late October after a last-minute intervention from the White House."

Gates kissed up to Trump and allowed this country to fall into a kleptocracy all for some-more stolen loot.

Every single filthy rich person who bows to Trump is rewarded with stolen lot from our treasury. The filthy rich could not be rich without our government giving them social welfare subsidies.

But don't let a Socialist share that wealth with the rest of us.

Gates has been having regular meetings with Trump eversince he took over the presidency.

And look how it paid off for Gates.

3. tRump pulled some strings or sent guys in fedoras and violin cases to visit the people awarding the


contract.

tRump hates Amazon with a passion because Bezos owns it and tRump hates Bezos with a passion because Bezos owns the Washington Post and tRump hates the WaPo with a passion because it prints facts and draws reasonable connections between facts.
