Not sure he considered that. He's waged a war on the USPS in order to hamper and destroy mail-in voting. I doubt he considered those ramifications.

His team might have. 600K workers, probably 1/3 are loyal to him even if it means their families suffer because Trump is THAT important to them.

400K workers and their families to suppress millions of votes from large cities.

I'm sure he didn't consider it.

It's like when he attack social security by cutting the payroll tax. He didn't consider that either.

And he's too much of a prima donna to have smart people in his circle. People who could warn him

With the Postal Workers Union endorsing Biden, and claiming the security of 600,000 Postal Jobs is threatened by Trump, did he just lose the support of 600,000 workers?

He touts his Police Union endorsement, which has 17,000 members. 600,000 members seems like a lot to be pissing off.

So? He has wanted to privatize them from the beginning. He didn't gain or lose anything.

We have spent most of the year calling them heroes, and now Trump treats them like this. I appreciate them more than ever. They are vital workers especially during election years.

Go right ahead and pretend pissing off 600,000 people won't cause any issues. But hey, he's got 17,000 police union members. :lamo

It should be no surprise how he treats them. Just look how he treated his wife while she was birthing his son he was out riding a Storm.

He won by 77,000 votes in like half a dozen counties in 2016.

He just threw away 600,000 potential voters - if they were a broad section of the populace then he can expect to have had at least 200,000 supporters in there. That alone is nearly three times the margin he won by last time. Let the good times roll

I would question whether Trump has any worker voting for him who is in a public union, with the way the now QOP attacks them.
The deaths of firemen, policemen, doctors, nurses, and all the other essential workers due to Covid can't be helping Trump with them.

I mean if I was a Postal Worker I'd likely be thinking "Do I want my job or do I want Trump to keep winning?" and make my decision that way....

Not he, the GOP, who's been attacking their pensions since at the very least Eric Cantor.
GOPs hate police and firemen because they hate their unions, which fight for their economic lives.

It is wild to me that any Union would back a Republican when Republicans historically try to weaken their bargaining power and eliminate their middle class incomes.

Sadly a few probably would prefer the latter. Hopefully most won't.

Conservatives never consider the ramifications of their actions.

Cut environmental protections...... then complain that the water is polluted, same type of ****.

Except a million votes.

LOL. They either voted for him or didn't and will vote for him or not. Nobody changes stripes that easily.....and you failed to account for the possibility maybe a few of these people are sick of working so much overtime while people are sitting at home on their arses.

Yep keep insulting them, that's the way to get them to vote Trump. :lamo

Trump is alienating everyone except his retarded Qanon followers. Trump supporters are truly the stupidest people in America, they are walking future Darwin Award Recipients waiting to happen. :lamo
