RS.C. Senator Lindsey Graham said Thursday that if Amazon chose not to help the Trump administration distribute the coronavirus vaccine across the United States, it would be “disgusting.”
In an interview with American Reporter, Graham said: “I don’t know what responsibilities you will bear, but let us ask ourselves the following questions: Is Jeff Bezos friendly to the cause of democracy? Yes, he has “Washington Post.” “Yes, I think it’s terrible… If they have this ability, they should share it with the Trump administration.”
Graham pointed out that although the first batch of vaccines were not approved for emergency use by December, Amazon “knows that they can be used before the election.”
He added: “I think if there is a Democratic president, they will announce it before the election.”
Why does Amazon have to wait until Biden takes office to provide vaccine distribution assistance?
Soon after President Biden was sworn in on Wednesday, Amazon congratulated the Democrats on their inauguration and provided extensive resources to help the new administration with vaccine distribution.
“Globally, when you start to lead the country out of the COVID-19 crisis, Amazon is ready to help you achieve your goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of management”, Amazon Global Consumer CEO Business, in Wrote in a letter to Biden on Wednesday.

“We are ready to use our operations, information technology and communications capabilities, and expertise to assist your government department with vaccination work,” Clark continued. “Our scale allows us to have an immediate and meaningful impact in the fight against Covid-19, and we are always ready to help you.”
Graham emphasized: “I think if they could actually help the Trump administration, but they chose not to do so because they didn’t like him, then Amazon’s actions are disgusting.” For Amazon, this is not a good time.”
