President Donald Trump on Saturday slammed Congressional Democrats’ efforts to fund the US. Postal Service, accusing them of trying to pull off a “scam” by promoting mail-in voting during the pandemic.

He also claimed that his administration’s efforts to slow down the mail ahead of the November election was actually a hoax, while again demonstrating his motivations.

“Representatives of the Post Office have repeatedly stated that they DO NOT NEED MONEY, and will not make changes. This is all another HOAX by the Democrats to give 25 Billion unneeded dollars for political purposes, without talking about the Universal Mail-In Ballot Scam….that they are trying to pull off in violation of everything that our Country stands for,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“Vote NO to the Pelosi/ Schumer money wasting HOAX which is taking place now. Then fight the $51 million unasked for Ballots. Only ABSENTEE BALLOTS are acceptable!” he added.

Trump’s comments came after the House Oversight Committee released documents showing the Trump administration’s U.S. Postal Service delays have been far worse than USPS has acknowledged.
