Trump Wants Amazon To Pay More Shipping For USPS
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
Another day and another event for President Donald J. Trump to further amaze us with his ability in eroding our system.
President Donald J. Trump has personally asked the U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan to double the shipping rates for Amazon and some other companies. Many are concerned that Amazon may end up passing the costs to the consumers. Postmaster Brennan has refused to comply with President Trump’s requests. USPS has contractual agreements with Amazon and other companies, and would only be reviewed by the appropriate regulatory agencies. So Trump’s request is both illegal and out of bound (not within his jurisdiction), especially given that Postmaster Brennan stated that Amazon’s relationship with the USPS has been profitable for USPS.
President Trump signed an executive order recently for a review of the postal service, despite Brennan’s reassurance. This review may eventually result in changes regarding how much Amazon and other companies may be charged for package deliveries in the future. Brennan and Trump have discussed about the relationship between USPS and Amazon multiple time since 2017. Despite Amazon and other postal services’ assurances that USPS profits from the relationship with Amazon, Trump appears unconvinced. Many believe Trump’s antagonism toward Amazon is due to the fact that its founder Jeff Bezos is also the owner of The Washington Post, the newspaper that had won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2017 (David Fahrenthold of The Washington Post “for persistent reporting that created a model for transparent journalism in political campaign coverage while casting doubt on Donald Trump’s assertions of generosity toward charities.”
