President Donald Trump stunned even hardened observers when he admitted on national television Thursday morning that he would not agree to additional U.S. Postal Service funding because it would make mail-in balloting easier.

"Now they need that money in order to make the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots," he said. "But if they don't get those two items, that means you can't have universal mail-in voting."

Later Thursday, Vice reported that the Postal Service is removing machines that sort mail ― including ballots ― from offices without an explanation, further raising alarms that Trump will degrade the post office to hurt mail-in voting.
