Dem Lawmaker Accuses Trump of Sabotaging the Postal Service to Control Mail-In Voting

Meaghan Ellis
Independent Journal Review
April 24, 2020

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) is accusing President Donald Trump of having calculated motives for refusing to bail out the United States Postal Service (USPS).

During his discussion with SiriusXM radio host Dean Obeidallah, Raskin noted the reason he believes Republicans oppose mail-in ballots. He also discussed the important role USPS will play in the upcoming presidential election.

“They don’t want to have a real election. We are going to be depending on the Post Office to deliver people their ballots and then have them return their ballots through the mail,” Raskins said, adding, “It’s another reason for not just Donald Trump but the whole Republican party to hate the Post Office.”

Raskin went on to express why believes Trump and the Republicans will attempt to sabotage postal services in order to control it, oversee mail-in voting, and interfere in the general election in November.

4. Trump showed his hand on April 16

He held an event in front of the White House to honor all of America's truckers. But except for a truck from a Tennessee company, the trucks on display and the drivers who spoke and received a "key to the WH" were from DHL, FedEx, and UPS. Bet their stocks went up that day. They went up when Trump refused to approve funds to the USPS. Trump's new postmaster is heavily invested in these 3 companies.
