Trump says he would agree to $25 billion for Postal Service if Democrats make concessions


WASHINGTON – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he would agree to up to $25 billion in funding for the U.S. Postal Service if Democratic lawmakers make concessions.

“Sure, if they give us what we want,” Trump said at a news briefing. He again blamed Democrats for what he described as “blocking” aid for Americans after talks on coronavirus relief efforts stalled in Congress.
