Trump won’t grant additional postal service funding because Democrats want it for mail-in voting

President Donald Trump made it clear Thursday that he would not approve additional funding for the postal service because he does not want to facilitate universal mail-in voting, something Democrats are pushing hard with the COVID-19 pandemic still active.

The president told Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business that USPS funding is one of the major items holding up COVID-19 relief package negotiations. While many Americans and businesses are struggling under continued economic restrictions, Congress might not get a deal done until September.

“[Democrats] want three and a half billion dollars for something that will turn out to be fraudulent, that’s election money, basically,” Trump said. “They want three and a half billion dollars for the mail-in votes, okay, universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion—billion—for the Post office.

“Now they need that money in order to have the Post Office work so it can take all these millions and millions of ballots,” Trump said. “Now in the meantime, they aren’t getting there—by the way, those are just two items, but if they don’t get those two items that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting.”

    How dare you accuse the Democrats of trying to “steal the election ?” In fact, Trump and the Republicans are trying to steal the November election, just as they did the previous one in 2016 . Voting by mail is NOT a cause of voter fraud , and this absurd claim has been thoroughly debunked .
    But our fascist dictator masquerading as a president is trying to END the US postal service because he is afraid LEGITIMATE voting by mail will result in him losing the election, which he thoroughly deserves to lose .
    In addition, the Republicans will be using the same dirty tactics they used to steal the election form the infinitely better qualified and smarter Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote by three million – the continued existence of our long obsolete and racist electoral college, blatant suppression of minority votes by blacks and Hispanics , and gerrymandering .

    Mr. President you’re a genius. Don’t give the USPS not 1 cent. The workers hate their jobs & r also very rude. No mail in voting under any circumstances.

    I am an 84 yo “senior”. Daily I am bombarded on phone a email with messages of “importance” and “help” to apply for absentee and mail-in voting. Not a single one of those offers has come from a conservative source. THAT SURELY SHOULD TELL EVERYONE SOMETHING.

    Stand firm, President Trump! No Covid 19 relief funds to be used for USPS mail out voting ballots, no funds to be used to bail out Democrat run cities and states. Residents of these cities and states should be required to ‘bail them out’ or go bankrupt. The politicians were elected by the citizens. If the citizens want a change, they must elect politicians to represent them that will live within the budget. Voters must go to polls or absentee voting (which are verified to be legitimate as they must be requested by the voter and information confirmed of true identity of individual… unlike simple vote by mail ballots which are not verified in anyway). Keep our elections legitimate.

    The President is smart.if they thought mail in voting was so secure then,they should have made sure throughout the years, it was safe. Why wouldn’t the dems want to make sure it is safe years ago, instead of the last minute. They can’t cheat is why !

    What is so disgusting about the Dumb Democrats is how they are trying desperately to accomplish…getting rid of *without a doubt* the best, smartest, and bravest president we have ever had in years. I’m 76 years old and it has been my deepest pleasure and honor to vote for Donald Trump. I have been seriously thinking those Democrats had something…in fact everything…to do with the Pandemic Virus we are now suffering from. Think about it…how many Democrats have proven “positive” for the virus…NONE. I just want to say onward and upward President Trump. You have my vote and prays. Stay well…we need you.

    How does an anchor baby qualify for VPOTUS or POTUS? If this obvious violation of the Constitution is allowed to proceed, every anchor baby raised in other countries will be eligible for POTUS. The precidence will have been established with Harris. This cannot be allowed just because she is a female and a minority.

    As far as vote by mail, absolutely not. WA is a great example of vote by mail. No repubs have successfully won key offices since it became law. The democrats are corrupt to the core. This the only reason quid pro joe is being pushed to the Presidency with known dementia issues. Fraud vote will catapult him into office. He will be replaced within 90 days via 25th amendment. Then the USA will have a POTUS and VPOTUS not elected by the people. Democrats can’t win on their policies. They are the Marxists.
