CNN: The United States Postal Service is in crisis, and one person is standing in the way of its salvation: President Donald J. Trump.

President Trump, who seems to be driven by his animus for Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, continues to blame Amazon’s deliveries for the financial decline of our Postal Service.

This despite the fact that more than 2,000 USPS employees have tested positive, or are presumed to have had Covid-19, and dozens of postal workers have died from symptoms related to the virus.
