Herman Cain: Postal Service Woes Aren't Amazon's Fault

By    |   Saturday, 31 March 2018 05:17 PM

The U.S. Postal Service is responsible for its own woes, not Amazon, former presidential candidate Herman Cain said Saturday after President Donald Trump tweeted a pair of attacks against the multibillion-dollar online company.

"Amazon should be left alone and let the market determine their fate along with consumers," Cain told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

"Secondly, fix the post office. Fix the postal system. It has been losing money for decades and they won't fix the problem.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump lambasted Amazon and called The Washington Post, owned by Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos, its "lobbyist."

The president tweeted first that "while we are on the subject, it is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon. That amounts to Billions of Dollars. The Failing N.Y. Times reports that “the size of the company’s lobbying staff has ballooned."

He continued that "does not include the Fake Washington Post, which is used as a 'lobbyist' and should so  REGISTER. If the P.O. 'increased its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.' This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!"

But Cain disagreed, saying that the "post office is the problem with itself. That's what I would say, and so main point is whenever you allow the markets, you allow consumers to determine the fate of somebody like Amazon."

Even if there are "irregularities, let the market handle it," he continued. "It will eventually shake it out and as far as the stock market, yes, we're seeing some volatility but it has not lost all of the great gains it has generated within the last year."

Cain, the retired CEO of Godfather's Pizza, also weighed in on a Washington Post article that detailed how Trump's economic policies are working in "Trump Country," or in locations where he had more voters, saying the article does not tell the "full story" about economic growth under the president.

"They are not telling the whole story," he said. "The whole country is 'Trump country,' and even if you look in those areas where they are saying Trump didn't get the majority of the votes, their economy is booming too," said Cain. "When you have a GDP growth rate north of 2.5 and we're off to a great start this year and the stock market is on fire, it's helping everybody."

However, the Post is doing "what they like to try to do and mislead people to think that only the Trump areas are doing better. The whole country is doing better and the economy is on the rise."
