Trump Wants The Post Office To Charge Amazon ‘MUCH MORE’

President Donald Trump believes the U.S. Post Office is not charging Amazon enough money to deliver its packages, he said in a Friday tweet.

What exactly sparked this missive from the president is unclear, but he has had a long and contentious history with Amazon and its CEO Jeff Bezos. The Post Office does, however, appear to be delivering Amazon packages for a price well below its cost of operations, essentially subsidizing the internet retailer’s bottom line.

“An April analysis from Citigroup estimates that if costs were fairly allocated, on average parcels would cost $1.46 more to deliver,” Josh Sandbulte pointed out in a July op-ed for The Wall Street Journal.
