President Donald Trump’s attacks on the U.S. Postal Service and by-mail voting are practically legendary, so its surprised many when he tweeted out a plea to “SAVE THE POST OFFICE!”
Trump’s Postmaster General has been removing mailboxes from across at least five states, and the scheduled removal of a whopping 671 high-volume mail sorting machines has rankled many Americans. So has what appears to be the intentional slowing of mail deliveries, including life-saving prescription medications.
Monday afternoon Trump’s call to “save” the USPS only earned him even more scorn.

In 2018 you called the Postal Service a “scam.” Just this April you called it a “joke.”
You were willing to veto desperately-needed COVID relief legislation that included funds to save it, and now your Postmaster General is actively undermining it.
Nice try. https://t.co/ScoAch2Bsn

GASLIGHTING: “Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which a person covertly sows seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or group, making them question their own memory, perception or judgment, often evoking in them cognitive dissonance and other changes.” https://t.co/fXVsoQasVC
