WASHINGTON (Reuters) ? President Donald Trump has personally pushed the postmaster general to double the rates the U.S. Postal Service charges Amazon.com and other companies to ship packages, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing three unnamed sources.

Postmaster General Megan Brennan resisted Trump?s suggestion in private conversations in 2017 and 2018, telling him that package delivery rates are set by contract and reviewed by an independent commission, and that the arrangements have helped the financially challenged Postal Service, the sources told the newspaper. Trump has claimed without evidence that deliveries for Amazon were costing the service money.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment and a spokesperson for the Postal Service could not be immediately reached.

    • What really concerns me, Conge, is that he almost seems to be using his notorious instability as a license to be as outrageous as possible. People are coming to accept his actions instead of holding him to account. Thanks for your comment.

  1. Maybe Trump is on to something that’s killing local jobs. where guilty as next person who shops online to find the lowest cost item and here in Thailand its shipped free, were does it end with Artificial Intelligence ruling the market place and the lowest denominator beats out the working class.
