President Biden recently received a letter from David Clark, the chief executive of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business, who offered his congratulations to the new president before offering a hand to help him reach the goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of his administration.
Operation Warp Speed, along with the Trump Administration, was heavily involved in the vaccine development process but left it up to the states with how to distribute the vaccine themselves. The states had 3 months in how to plan the distribution of the vaccine. Heavily Democrat states implemented mass vaccination sites run by inefficient bureaucracies while Florida and other Republican-leaning states led the country by utilizing private pharmacies where people know and trust their pharmacists. Why did Amazon wait five weeks from the date of the first vaccine rollout crisis to offer the government assistance?
“As you begin your work leading the country out of the COVID-19 crisis, Amazon stands ready to assist you in reaching your goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of your administration. We are prepared to leverage our operations, information technology, and communications capabilities and expertise to assist in your administration’s vaccination efforts. Our scale allows us to make a meaningful impact immediately in the fight against COVID-19, and we stand ready to assist you in this effort,” the letter reads.
While Amazon declined to explain why they did not offer assistance to former President Trump, they said they had been in contact with U.S government officials regarding COVID-19 over the last nine months. The contact they referred to was a letter Clark had sent the CDC advisory board on Dec. 16. They wanted to work with the Advisory Committee On Immunization Practices on prioritizing their essential workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as early as possible, such as those working at Amazon fulfillment centers, AWS data centers, and Whole Foods Market Stores. The letter mentioned only mere side interests for the company, but nothing about accommodating vaccine distribution.
The letter concludes by declaring they stay committed to assisting “your administration’s vaccination efforts” and working together to protect employees and providing essential services during the pandemic. Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and other big names continue to choose political sides and show their open hypocrisy and hatred towards conservatives. The ‘coincidences’ keep on coming.
