Trump Admits He Will Destroy Postal Service To Prevent Voting By Mail August 13, 2020

Election Theft: President Donald Trump admits that he is starving the U.S. Postal Service of funding in an attempt to sabotage voting by mail efforts in hopes of stealing the 2020 presidential election.

NPR reports:

While President Trump has long railed against mail-in voting, falsely claiming it leads to rampant fraud, he appeared to confirm Thursday morning that he opposes Democrats’ proposed boost in funding to the U.S. Postal Service for the express purpose of making it harder to expand voting by mail.

Truthout reports:

President Donald Trump proclaimed Wednesday that the U.S. Postal Service doesn’t have the capacity to handle an unprecedented increase in mail-in ballots because it lacks funds that his administration is blocking, remarks that were immediately viewed as an open admission of election sabotage by a president who has previously called USPS “a joke.”

Trump made his admission that he was preventing funds going to the Postal Service to sabotage mail-in-voting during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Network. When asked why the White House and congressional Democrats were unable to reach a compromise on the next stimulus package, Trump said:

They [the Democrats] want three and a half billion dollars for something that’ll turn out to be fraudulent — that’s election money basically.

Trump continued: 

They want $25 billion for the post office. Now, they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots. Now, in the meantime, they aren’t getting there. But if they don’t get those two items, that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting because they’re not equipped to have it.

Trump added:

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.

He said the quiet part out loud.

Make no mistake, this is a despicable attempt by Trump to prevent American citizens from voting. Trump believes that if Americans are allowed to vote by mail he and the Republicans will lose. So he is willing to sabotage and even destroy the U.S. Postal Service in order to win reelection.

As one might imagine, Trump was condemned for his blatantly unethical and perhaps illegal attempt to sabotage the Postal Service.

The Washington Post reports:

Trump’s attack on the Postal Service is now a national emergency.

The following is a sample of reactions via social media:

 

Bottom line: President Donald Trump has admitted that he is starving the U.S. Postal Service of funding in an attempt to sabotage voting by mail efforts in hopes of stealing the 2020 presidential election.
