Pelosi, Schumer Issue Statement Calling on Trump to ‘Cease His Assault on the Postal Service’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are demanding President Donald Trump stop launching attacks against the United States Postal Service (USPS).

They released a statement on Friday, turning their focus to his criticisms of the Postal Service and policies put into place by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.

“House and Senate Democrats call on the president to immediately cease his assault on the postal service, make clear that he will allow the 2020 election to proceed without his sabotage tactics and enable the American people the same opportunity he and the First Lady requested this week to vote by absentee ballot,” the Democratic lawmakers said.

They urged DeJoy to “quickly reverse” the changes he made to the agency’s operations because it has led to delays and service reductions and ultimately threatens to “undermine our democracy.”

Pelosi and Schumer claimed DeJoy pushes policies accelerating the “crisis at the Postal Service, delaying mail and jeopardizing the integrity of elections.”

Pelosi and Schumer mentioned the president’s comments he made yesterday threatening to “further starve” the postal service of the money the agency needs in order to deliver absentee ballots in time for the upcoming presidential election.

During an interview with Fox Business on Thursday, Trump said if Democrats do not receive the funding they are requesting for the postal service, they “can’t have universal mail-in voting,” as IJR previously reported.

Pelosi and Schumer accused Trump of putting his own re-election efforts in front of Democracy.

“The president’s comments today affirm that no patriotic tradition is immune from his abuse of power,” the statement reads.

It continues, “The president made plain that he will manipulate the operations of the post office to deny eligible voters the ballot in pursuit of his own re-election. The President’s own words confirm: he needs to cheat to win.”

Responses

  1. It seems like Nancy wants the national mail in votes which will mean that many ballots will be delayed in the counting, plus the possible fact that many ballots will be illegally harvested along with those that will be changed in favor of the democratic party. Here is where it gets messy : “The Electoral College electors then formally cast their electoral votes on the first Monday after December 12 at their respective state capitals. Congress then certifies the results in early January.” So if all the votes have not been tallied or located and congress cannot certify the results, guess who gets to be POTUS? NANCY PELOSI, as she is third in line in succession, as President Trump and Vice President Pence will have to leave office. Now I’m not saying this is what will actually happen, but the way Nancy is trying to remove President Trump from office, I would not put this past her.

  2. Chuck and Nancy are like 3 year olds whining and stomping their feet.
    Who’s holding up what? They are demanding that the relief bill include
    bailing out the Demonrat run cities that allowed the “protestors” to
    riot, loot and burn businesses. I think it’s advisable that Trump
    help the USPS but no for the troubled cities!

  3. “You are assuming that all people are as corrupt as the Dims.” I Ching

    And YOU are willing to selfishly let your fellow IJR members struggle without being able to make replies the way you figured out. Why is that, I Ching?

    I don’t assume that everyone is corrupt. I follow the money. If YOU want to ignore facts, then that is YOUR problem and our democracy’s problem.

  5. As things stand now, if Democrats are allowed a fair vote without suppression, Joke Biden wins 352 seats.

    If Dear Leader cheats through restricted mail-in votes, he wins 302 seats.

  6. Louis DeJoy and his wife Aldona Wos reported between at least $30 million to just over $75 million in assets from XPO Logistics, J.B. Hunt and UPS. All are competitors with U.S. Postal Service operations.

    DeJoy has given more than $2 million to the Trump campaign and Republican causes since 2016, including $1 million to the Republican National Committee and $650,000 to the Trump Victory Fund.

  7. Here’s the question and projection of Chuckles and Nantsy.

    Why are YOU pushing so hard for the USPS now that you are also pushing mail-in ballots? Are you admitting that Trump has checked you?

    Why didn’t either of you work under Obozo (eight long years) to fortify the USPS? Hmm?

    Now when it’s “Curses! Foiled again!” you pay attention to the USPS. Your efforts look so damn suspicious, especially since you’ve suddenly abandoned your “help our people, i.e. unions, blue states” efforts. Wow are you easily distracted.

  8. Do your job and impeach Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. DeJoy has a personal financial interest to take down the post office and it is your responsibility to remove DeJoy from his posit because of his corruption. Get to work.
