Trump says the USPS is too poorly funded to handle mail-in voting — while opposing additional funding for it

President Donald Trump noted Wednesday that the US Postal Service does not have the money required to process mail-in votes for the presidential election — while also making clear that he opposes giving it more money.

“They don’t have the money to do the universal mail-in voting. So therefore, they can’t do it, I guess,” Trump said of the agency. “Are they going to do it even if they don’t have the money?”

Despite Trump on Wednesday admitting that the USPS doesn’t have the funds to cope with increased postal votes, in Congress Republicans are continuing to block a coronavirus relief package that Democrats say needs to include increased funding for the Postal Service, reported NPR on Wednesday.
