Trump supports Postal Service after threatening to cut its funding

United States President Donald Trump on Friday pledged to ’never let our Post Office fall’, hours after having threatened to block emergency assistance to the United States Postal Service. The President had earlier hit out at the agency for not raising package shipping prices on retail giants like Amazon.

The postal service is bloated and unsustainable without massive subsidization. They cut deals with big players like Amazon for delivery below cost. Who pays for that? Us! Why not raise rates? They'd fold. Why not lay off the fat, slow, workforce? DaUnionz!

They wouldn't need a "loan" if he hadn't "robbed" them when he 👀 first came into office!

Amazon who paid nothing in taxes has a problem paying for cost of its own shipping? Tough love. Maybe making the price realistic would mean local businesses will be able to better compete with mega corporations who evade taxes and don't pay their own cost of operation. This is good news for small businesses, bad news for globalists. Consumers will not be affected in the long run. They will just order in larger volume per shipment to still get free shipping.

It took USPS 52 hours to deliver meds from a CVS that is a 10 minute walk away. Not exaggerating. Yeah, don't fund them.
