WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says the administration will "take a very long look" at a massive multibillion-dollar contract the Pentagon is about to award for a cloud computing system.

Amazon Web Services Inc., a division of Amazon, and Microsoft Corp. are finalists for the contract estimated to be worth as much as $10 billion over a decade.

Trump says Thursday at the White House that he's been hearing "tremendous complaints" from other companies that the contract was not competitively bid, among other issues. Some Republican lawmakers also took their concerns about the Pentagon's handling of the contract directly to Trump.

Trump is a critic of Amazon, which is owned by Jeff Bezos. Bezos also owns The Washington Post, and Trump has criticized the paper's coverage of the administration.
