What business does Trump have doing this (assuming the allegations are true)?
"President Trump has personally pushed U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan to double the rate the Postal Service charges Amazon.com and other firms to ship packages, according to three people familiar with their conversations, a dramatic move that probably would cost these companies billions of dollars.
Brennan has so far resisted Trump’s demand, explaining in multiple conversations occurring this year and last that these arrangements are bound by contracts and must be reviewed by a regulatory commission, the three people said. She has told the president that the Amazon relationship is beneficial for the Postal Service and gave him a set of slides that showed the variety of companies, in addition to Amazon, that also partner for deliveries."
The really amazing part is that Trump’s own (former) economic adviser, Gary Cohn, had to explain to Trump that contracts with companies like Amazon are what make money for the post office.
“One of Amazon’s biggest defenders within the White House was Cohn, who had told Trump that the Postal Service actually made money on the payments Amazon made for package delivery. Cohn announced his departure from the White House in March.”
Maybe that explains why Cohn is really gone-he’s tried to get Trump to understand how things, like tariffs and postal contracts, actually work.
The president of the US should not be trying to use his power to hurt businesses he doesn’t like. That applies to ANY president.
