‘They need that money’: Trump admits impact of withholding USPS funds

After open and widespread speculation that Donald Trump has directed a shortfall of funding for the U.S. Postal Service in an effort to interfere with mail-in voting, he appeared to confirm it in a Fox News Channel interview on Thursday.


“They want $25 billion for the post office,” he said. “Now, they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots. 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, because they’re not equipped to have it.”

He went on to further disparage the widespread use of absentee ballots as a preventative measure against the coronavirus pandemic that continues to kill roughly 1,000 Americans per day.

“Now, if we don’t make a deal that means they don’t get the money,” the president taunted. “That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting. They just can’t have it. So, you know, sort of a crazy thing.”
