Donald Trump is being sued over his attempt to sabotage the US mail system ahead of the 2020 election.
“The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court as multiple lawsuits were threatened across the country as a response to comments the president recently made and actions taken by newly appointed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to change operations at post offices nationwide,” the Associated Press reported.
The lawsuit is pushing for funding for the postal service before the election to counteract the attempts to undermine the system from Trump and his chosen Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.
Attorney Mondaire Jones, who is running for Congress in New York, is among the plaintiffs in the suit.
Millions plan to vote by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic that has killed over 170,000 Americans on Donald Trump’s watch.
