Though Republicans and a few within the mainstream media tried to disclaim it, the proof is overwhelming that Trump’s handpicked postmaster common took unlawful actions to decelerate the mail. If Trump loses the election will probably be attention-grabbing to see if DeJoy is prosecuted for his marketing campaign finance scheme or actions as postmaster common.
The states are combating again towards Trump and DeJoy, they usually should win to cease the worry marketing campaign towards the Postal Service that Trump is finishing up each single day.
