It seems completely destroying something is Trump's idea of "making it great." Trump was asked about the sabotage of the United States Postal Service that's being done in plain sight during a press conference Saturday night, and pretended he cares about funding the agency, lied again about vote-by-mail, and blamed the Democrats for refusing to fund the Post Office, even though he himself admitted that was why the negotiations on the coronavirus stimulus bill were at an impasse.

Trump also admitted he has absolutely no idea what his flunky was doing to make the Post Office "great", but he'll be looking into it shortly.

REPORTER: Does Postmaster DeJoy have your backing for the actions he is taken in the last several weeks?

TRUMP: Yeah, He's a fantastic man. He wants to make the Post Office great again. You ever hear the expression? He wants to make the Post Office great again. The Post Office is a catastrophe.

REPORTER: The sorting machines nationwide. That's one of the things...

TRUMP: I don't know what he's doing. I can only tell you is a very smart man. He'll be a great Postmaster General and he needs obviously, if you are going to do these millions of ballots out of nowhere, he's going to obviously need funding, but the Democrats aren't willing to provide other things and therefore they are not going to get the funding for that.

You are going to have a catastrophic situation with universal mail-in votes and on top of it the Democrats aren't willing to give the people the money and the Post Office the money.

So seniors and veterans not getting their prescriptions, people being charged late fees because their bills aren't payed on time, small businesses who rely on the Post Office having their packages delayed in the middle of a pandemic on top of the mistrust that's being generated intentionally in our election system is "making it great again." Tell that to the people being directly affected by the sabotage.
