President Trump on Saturday defended postmaster general Louis DeJoy amid criticisms of his actions at the helm of the U.S. Postal Service, although Mr. Trump did admit "I don't know what he's doing." "I can only tell you he's a very smart man," Mr. Trump said. "He'll be a great postmaster general."

Mr. Trump also denied that he and the postmaster general are deliberately attempting to hamper the Postal Service in the run up the general election. He claimed DeJoy "would love to see" successful mail-in voting, although the president also then said he has not spoken to DeJoy about it.

When asked about the recent warning from the U.S. Postal Service that mail-in ballots for the November election may not arrive on time, Mr. Trump again voiced his disapproval of mail-in voting.
