Cotton Statement on Google Dropping Bid for Department of Defense Cloud Contract

October 9, 2018

Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on Google's decision to drop their bid for the Department of Defense's cloud contract:

"This is sadly not the first time Google has refused to work with the United States military, while still entertaining the authoritarian demands of the Chinese Communist Party. I hope Google takes a long, hard look at their so-called ‘principles.' They ought to remember they're an American company and reconsider this decision."
