Trump has admitted that he plans to underfund the U.S. Postal Service specifically to prevent it from having enough money to handle mail in ballots for the presidential election:
Trump’s corrupt handpicked postmaster general, who owns tens of millions of dollars in stock with private delivery companies and was a major campaign donor for Trump, has ordered the removal of hundreds of mail drop boxes and mail sorting machines in a deliberate effort to slow down the mail and thus help with Trump’s election:
A Postal Service worker said that the funding cutbacks and removal of sorting machines are intended to rig the election by stopping people from voting by mail:
Protestors marched outside the condo of the corrupt postmaster general and demanded his resignation:
The attempt to slow down the mail by the corrupt postmaster general is a blatant action to prevent Democrats from voting. At least 50% of Democrats plan to vote by mail, whereas only 22% of Republicans said they will do so:
Pew found that 58% of Democrats prefer voting by mail, but only 17% of Republicans say they prefer that method to cast their ballot:
The Postal Service says it cannot guarantee mail in ballots delivery in time for the November election:
There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Trump is methodically securing his hold on the presidency by any means necessary, even if it means acting as a dictator. If Republicans in the Senate do not stop this latest extreme abuse of power, they will be complicit in destroying our representative form of democracy and handing the nation to a dictator.
Trump has also said he will refuse to accept the results of the election if he loses.
Democrats are considering returning from recess early to battle Trump’s abuse of the Postal Service:
ProPublica has been reporting about how Postal Service problems could affect the presidential election since June:
Taylor Swift is encouraging mail in voters to vote early because of Trump’s actions to suppress the vote:
Trump’s attacks on the Postal Service to help his reelection should generate nonstop coverage by the news media:
It would also help if people who have a moral conscience and care about the integrity of the presidential election would go on social media and demand that the Postal Service be fully funded and that it must keep all of drop boxes and sorting machines. And contact your members of Congress!
There is a petition to save the U.S. Postal Service:
The nation’s election in November is in jeopardy because of Trump’s corrupt treatment of the Postal Service. And that puts the entire nation at risk.
Update: The postmaster general announced that he has reversed his decision to gut the Postal Service:
Update: Postal Service sorting machines that were shut down earlier will not be used:
