Donald Trump continued his semi-literate twitter tirade against Amazon and the US Postal Service this morning. Although he didn’t repeat his previous lie about Amazon not paying sales tax, he once again claimed that Amazon treats the USPS as its “Delivery Boy”, which is of course, true. (Full disclosure: I also treat the USPS as MY delivery boy!)
Then he upped the ante on his criticism of the USPS by appearing to suggest that either USPS management or the independent postal regulator (or both), are either stupid or corrupt:
I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy. Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne by the American Taxpayer. Many billions of dollars. P.O. leaders don’t have a clue (or do they?)!
You don’t suppose he’s suggesting collusion do you? As is his usual practice, Trump failed to provide any evidence of the imagined wrong-doing.
