mp pushes post office to raise Amazon rates

President Donald Trump has personally pressured the United States Postal Service to raise the rate it charges Amazon to deliver packages, according to a Friday report from The Washington Post.

Trump asked Megan Brennan, the US postmaster general, to double the rate that the Postal Service charges Amazon and other companies to deliver packages, The Post reported, citing three people familiar with the conversations.

"Brennan has so far resisted Trump's demand, explaining in multiple conversations occurring this year and last that these arrangements are bound by contracts and must be reviewed by a regulatory commission, the three people said," The Post reported. "She has told the president that the Amazon relationship is beneficial for the Postal Service and gave him a set of slides that showed the variety of companies, in addition to Amazon, that also partner for deliveries."
