    US President Donald Trump has admitted that he is not inclined to fund the US Postal Service (USPS) because that would allow people to receive mail-in ballots in a timely fashion to be counted ahead of the 2020 presidential election - and he’s scared the votes won’t be for him.

    Going Postal

    In an attempt to cast doubt over the validity of the upcoming election should he lose, Trump has opposed funding for the USPS that Democrats have backed as a part of coronavirus relief legislation because it would strengthen Americans’ access to mail-in ballots amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    On Thursday, Trump admitted to Fox News that he is opposed to the funding for the USPS because it would allow it to take in "millions and millions of [mail-in] ballots" ahead of the 2020 election, and without that money, Democrats “can't have universal mail-in voting.” 

    It’s a good thing we don’t use the Postal Service for anything else!
