Trump Defends U.S. Postal Service Changes as Democrats Mount Pressure

He described the USPS as "one of the disasters of the world"

Today, President Donald Trump denied trying to undermine the U.S. Postal Service’s ability to handle a flood of mail-in ballots ahead of the November U.S. election, as Democrats in Congress set a Saturday vote on legislation to halt his policy changes.

“No, we’re not tampering,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News amid an outcry from Democrats and other critics who accuse him of trying to hamstring the Postal Service to suppress mail-in voting as he trails Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden in opinion polls.

“We want to make it run efficiently, run good," Tump said. "We want to make it run for less money, much better, always taking care of our postal workers.” He added that the postal service is “one of the disasters of the world.”
