Mail Delays Fuel Concern Trump Is Undercutting Postal System Ahead of Voting

WASHINGTON — Welcome to the next election battleground: the post office.

President Trump’s years long assault on the Postal Service and his increasingly dire warnings about the dangers of voting by mail are colliding as the presidential campaign enters its final months. The result has been to generate new concerns about how he could influence an election conducted during a pandemic in which greater-than-ever numbers of voters will submit their ballots by mail.

In tweet after all-caps tweet, Mr. Trump has warned that allowing people to vote by mail will result in a “CORRUPT ELECTION” that will “LEAD TO THE END OF OUR GREAT REPUBLICAN PARTY” and become the “SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES.” He has predicted that children will steal ballots out of mailboxes. On Thursday, he dangled the idea of delaying the election instead.

This exactly why Don the Con has his puppet Kiljoy in place to do. Your fired in November Donnie boy!

You are going to be surprised on the day after election night.

I don’t think so. Hopefully the public has had enough of Trumps bullshit

Anybody who works at post office knows we can hardly handle all the parcels and mail now.If you don’t want your vote to count vote by mail.

Bullshit. The only thing delaying mail the last 4 months is Amazon parcels.

Since the new PMG took over and put mail before Amazon the mail is getting out better.

I was told as a new RCA from April until mid July, if you can’t finish the route, stop delivering the mail and finish Amazon. This is the Obama regime contracts.

You are an idiot tool/troll. Mail has slowed down across the nation because of the dumb, racist, Russian plant Trump.

D Jones, there is no mail for it to slow down. Did you read the second quarter financial report. FIrst class mail down 8%. Marketing mail down 30%-40%. Can you read?

My bad. I realized you are a little slow. Now i see why you vote for a Joe Biden. He matches your intelligence level. I couldn’t tell from your post initially because it’s hard to decipher people that lack it.
