Idiot: Trump Admits to Sabotaging Post Office to Rig Election

Daily Beast: President Donald Trump has come out and admitted what many have already accused him of—that he’s blocking federal aid for the U.S. Postal Service in an attempt to sabotage mass mail-in voting during November’s presidential election.

Congressional Democrats have demanded that a coronavirus relief bill include money to help post-office officials prepare for a presidential contest during the raging pandemic that has killed more than 165,000 Americans. In an interview with Fox Business Network on Thursday morning, Trump proudly admitted he was blocking the aid.

“If we don’t make the deal, that means they can’t have the money, that means they can’t have universal mail-in voting,” he said. “It just can’t happen.” Trump has repeatedly raged against the idea of mail-in voting, claiming with no evidence that it would make the election open to fraud.

Joe Biden has previously said it’s obvious Trump is trying to “indirectly steal the election by arguing that mail-in ballots don’t work.”  And from the Guardian:

“The president’s comments also come amid accusations that Louis DeJoy, the new postmaster general and a major Republican donor, is making cuts at the agency to intentionally slow down the mail. There are reports of severe mail delays in places across the country and the Washington Post and other news organizations published internal USPS documents last month saying there was a blanket ban on overtime and that workers were being told to leave mail behind if it will delay them on their routes. A USPS spokesman denied there was a blanket ban on overtime, but did not address questions about whether employees were being told to leave the mail behind.

A slower mail service could have a big impact this fall because an unprecedented number of Americans are expected to vote by mail and many states require a ballot to arrive at an election office by election day, regardless of when it was put in the mail, in order to be counted. At least 65,000 ballots were rejected during the 2020 primaries because they arrived too late.

‘If we don’t make a deal that means they don’t get the money. That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting. They just can’t have it. Sort of a crazy thing,’ Trump said on Thursday.

Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, said in a statement Trump was attacking the US economy and democracy.

‘The president of the United States is sabotaging a basic service that hundreds of millions of people rely upon, cutting a critical lifeline for rural economies and for delivery of medicines, because he wants to deprive Americans of their fundamental right to vote safely during the most catastrophic public health crisis in over 100 years,’ he said.”

  1. Wall Street Journal is posting fake news for help Trump ???
    Today appeared posted there an article that say…
    “…The Trump administration has for the first time confiscated cargo in vessels allegedly loaded with Iran fuel in violation of sanctions, U.S. officials said, as it steps up its campaign of maximum pressure against Tehran….”
    Iran government and his ambassador at Caracas denies any seized ships

  2. The election commission’s could work with USPS using the post mark as the evidence that USPS handled the ballot just like IRS accepts the cancellation even if documents are received after aprial 15.

    Who will print up 200 million ballots? My guess would be one of the large mailing contractors as their systems are robust as look at your junk mail however, potus is opposed to mail in voting because that will favor the Democrats as more ballots will be sent in and as we know the GOP plays hardball with vote suspression.

    This could easily be done if the will is there and the ole Post Office would step up.

  3. Machines are sitting idle due to drops in mail volume Mr Duff as floor space is used to sort packages as that volume has exploded.

    My suggestion to balance USPS finances? Cut management positions by 50 percent and get rid of the temporary workers and honor the union contracts.

    Ballots by mail? USPS can easily handle a temporary surge in volume like voting by mail as the orange Moron is right not to give them a plum nickle.

    USPS, FedEx, UPS and now Amazon are basically merged in today’s transportation world as FedEx handles 100% of USPS air transportation as it could be argued that FedEx could be given a contract to manage postal operations.

    FedEx will admit that without that contract with USPS they would not be a viable company.

    FedEx is a well run company that must make a profit but USPS is mandated to deliver the last mile no matter the cost to every address. Way different cost structure.
