THE PRESIDENT’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTIONS
Directing the United States Postal Service to explore raising postal ratesfor Amazon because its founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, owns The Washington Post, a newspaper that the president views as critical of him.
Threatening to have the federal government revoke television broadcast licenses in response to those networks’ coverage of the president.
Directing the removal of certain White House correspondents from events covering the president and threatening to ban additional journalists from these events.
Yours in solidarity,
