It doesn’t get more shameless than working to destroy a cornerstone of American democracy, but that’s exactly what President Donald Trump is trying to do in his attack on the United States Postal Service. Since the coronavirus pandemic has shifted the need for vote-by-mail to every state in the country for the 2020 Election, Trump and his new Post Master General Louis DeJoy are working in an openly craven and brazen way to slow the mail and gum up the gears of our democracy.
In this video, I explore the foundational history of the Post Office in the function of American democracy, the Republican party’s attempts to destabilize and privatize the USPS, and why Trump’s attack on the institution is another beyond-the-pale move from this corrupt president. Thanks for watching!
