Another win by President Trump as Universal Postal Union agrees to allow U.S. to set inbound rates on international mail

Sept. 26, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for getting the Universal Postal Union to agree to allow the U.S. to set its own inbound postage rates for international mail:

“President Donald Trump just notched another win for America: the Universal Postal Union just held an emergency meeting and agreed to allow the U.S. to set our own inbound postage rates on international mail. The meeting was called in response to Trump’s threat to leave the union over postal rates. For years, U.S. postal customers have been subsidizing postage for Chinese companies making it cheaper to mail packages from Beijing to Texas than from Buffalo to Texas — and killing American jobs in the process. Bill Clinton did nothing to address this obvious case of unfairness; George W. Bush did nothing; and Barack Obama did nothing. But now it’s going to stop, thanks to President Trump.”
