Maybe it’s time to invest in a flock of carrier pigeons…

Obviously him doing this would be stupid, since the bulk of those votes generally go to Republicans via the military.

nevertheless, there’s probably a few less-than-hysterical fixes for this in any event. Pre-paid postage via private shippers paid for by states, just to name one example.

this is hardly Armageddon. It’s just typical Trump stupid.

I’m sure there will be calls saying that is animal abuse though.

Pelosi, at this point you, Chuckles, and your minions, are part of the fucking problem! Allowing this to continue is either cowardice, incompetence, or Accessory.

Your triangulation is going to leave us with nothing to work with.Is that the plan you and your Wall Street Buddies are running with?

Where TF do things like this come from? Withdrawal from an international postal union, and the trumpenfuhrer must tweet about it! Apparently there are no more career bureaucrats who handle this sort of thing - and of course the China madness is strong with him.
.
We know damn well he is incapable of actually coming up with this detail on his own, so where, and who, puts these idiot ideas in his tiny mind, and what is their purpose? Is it Republicon right-wing nutters? “Religious” extremist nutters?
I mean, c’mon, its like every frelling day some new mindless drivel or salted-earth madness escapes his tweet universe of tiny-hands delusional rot!

Vote BLUE to get rid of the RED, or soon the Orange Cheato will try to raise the domestic postal rates sky high as well!!
Or worse, turn over the entire USPS to private companies, like Amazon or Fed Express!!
Look at how the HYDE amendment gagging any abortion efforts or mention of it was tried out internafionally for decades, before being imposed here recently.
This regime only keeps the parts of fhe laws that it wants, not the entire Constitution or US Code.

Postal rates are certainly low on the list of reasons the American economy is in decline. The driving force for this is of course voter suppression.

This coming election is not socialism vs capitalism as the oligarchy wants you to believe, it is about democracy vs unfettered capitalism.

Republicans are the embodiment of unfettered capitalism and the antithesis of democracy.

After Trump meets the demands of American manufacturers and importers to end Asian subsidized postage, we will pay a higher price for these goods and the retailers without competition will jack up prices further.

I predict that we have not seen anything yet! I am sure this latest postal move could hurt Republicans as much as Democrats. We all know Trump is sooooo corrupt that he will stop at nothing to be re-selected in 2020.

Didn’t Trump’s ghostwriter tell him that part of the scribbling of a deal is actually performing under it? There seems to be a disturbing trend in his approach to government agreements that he has yet to meet one that he likes. Trump governments are supposed to at least operate its services at costs. It is resort properties that are supposed to operate at a profit. China is not going to be able to squeeze enough out of increased postage to rush to Iceland and build new resorts. Besides it is North Korea that is the family dynasty. You can partner with them for Icelandic resorts. They have lots of money. Got it like the same way Republicans pass out money to Billionaires - from the many to the very few. Why are you worried about the rate of international postage? Are you secretly a philatelist? Will it be a sticky situation if the rest of the world finds out? Or you just looking to force the post office to buy armored postal trucks and post armed guards on them. You know. Just in case the well financed People’s Postal Army starts World War III with the United States Postal Service? If anyone can cause that to happen I’ll bet a dollar in Vegas you can.

Hi Emphyrio:
I think Trump is one of those strange people who happens to believe that QUICK action is necessary to exhibit true resolve!
Trump is an idiot that does these quick , stupid moves, as he thinks these moves prove that he’s in charge.
All Trump wants to do is to withdraw from everything---------withdraw, withdraw, oh if only his father had!

Actually, it is small boxes from China. Due to international postal rates, I can order from Alibaba in China, get a better price than Amazon at the same shipping cost. Trump hates Bozo and Amazon for both political reasons (WAPO) and their secret deals with USPS but he hates China more.
