Trump Campaign Adviser Says USPS Can't Handle Universal Mail-In Voting

Trump campaign senior adviser Steve Cortes on Sunday charged the U.S. Postal System is “no where near” being able to handle universal mail-in voting.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Cortes said the massive undertaking is beyond the beleaguered USPS’ current ability — and an increase in funding won’t help.

“There’s no amount of money that could get the Postal Service ready for universal vote-by-mail,” he declared.

He also hit the reliability of expanded mail-in voting.

"We know that 17% of all ballots that were sent out...were returned as undeliverable” in Clark County’s June primary in Nevada, he said.

Still, Cortes said President Donald Trump would be willing to give the Postal Service more money if a deal can be hammered out with Democratic leadership.
