The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has justified his refusal to expand the Postal Service (USPS) resources, asserting that he only wants to fix the “catastrophe” that the Democrats are turning this public company into amid the debate over the Post would have overturned the legitimacy of the vote by mail in the November elections.
The Democrats, a majority in the House of Representatives, are defending the $ 25,000 million increase in USPS funding under a new bailout package, but Trump believes this is all a “scam” his rivals are ultimately trying to favor the former’s options Vice President Joe Biden.
Trump has defended that he wants to do the postal service “good” and that he will “look after” his workers. “The way it has been administered for years has nothing to do with Trump. It was a disaster,” criticized the president during an interview with Fox News on Monday.
The background to this is the doubts expressed by the president about the legality of postal voting, a method that could increase in November due to the coronavirus pandemic. Trump has repeatedly warned that mass mail ballots would open the door to “fraud” even though there is no evidence to support these claims.
