The U.S. postmaster general has been resisting pressure from President
Trump to double the rate that it charges Amazon and other companies for package
delivery, according to The Washington Post. The newspaper, owned by Amazon
founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, cited three people in the report who “spoke on the
condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the White
House’s internal deliberations.” Megan Brennan, the postmaster general,
maintains that the service’s partnership with Amazon is profitable and bound by
a contract overseen by a regulatory commission. Nevertheless, the service has
been losing money for more than a decade. Trump, who recently signed an
executive order allowing the government to review postal operations, says that
the giant e-tailer uses its size and connection to the newspaper to “push
bricks-and-mortar companies out of business,” per the Post.
