Postal Service Hikes Prices But Says Not Due To Trump’s Vendetta Against Amazon

The postal service is instituting price hikes, including on a parcel delivery system used by Amazon, though the department denies that the increases are due to President Donald Trump’s desire to punish the online giant, according to a Thursday Politico report.

Amazon and other large bulk shippers enjoy special rates with the postal service, so it is not immediately clear how hard it’ll be hit by the hike.
