Trump just said the quiet part out loud.
In a recent interview with Politico, Trump revealed his multimillion-dollar legal effort to strike down vote-by-mail availability – declaring those ballots his “biggest risk” for losing reelection.
In fact, even as election experts project record-high vote-by-mail ballots this election, Trump is scaling up attacks on its largest facilitator: The U.S. Postal Service.
This is simply outrageous. The US Postal Service is warning that it could shut down in September without rescue funding – just weeks before the election. And instead of funding the agency, Trump is purposefully sabotaging it to try to win re-election.
Trump is launching this push right before he and thousands of his GOP allies are back on the ballot.
Already, Trump’s campaign is bankrolling lawsuits to stop vote-by-mail in key battleground states. He’s threatened to veto emergency funding for the people’s postal service, and he’s even installed a loyal GOP donor and ally as Postmaster General – to weaken the agency from the inside.
Trump is hoping a broken postal service will swing the election in his favor. Gary & Norma, we must make it clear that if the USPS goes down on Trump’s watch, Republicans will pay the price at the ballot box.
