Supported by ByJim Tankersley Dec. 4, 2018 WASHINGTON — President Trump spent much of last spring accusing Amazon of pulling a “scam” on the American taxpayer and ripping off the United States Postal Service. On Tuesday, his administration delivered its own verdict: Not so much. The task force created by Mr. Trump to investigate the Postal Service’s finances did conclude that the mail system is losing money. But a report issued on Tuesday said that commercial package delivery for Amazon and other e-commerce retailers was actually profitable for the Postal Service and was not costing the United States “massive amounts of money,” as Mr. Trump has suggested in his tweets. Commercial package … [Read more...] about Trump Said Amazon Was Scamming the Post Office. His Administration Disagrees.

By The Associated Press | PUBLISHED: November 16, 2018 at 11:31 am | UPDATED: November 16, 2018 at 11:31 am By Ellen Knickmeyer | Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he will name the Environmental Protection Agency’s acting head, Andrew Wheeler, to the post permanently. Trump made the announcement almost in passing Friday at a White House ceremony for Presidential Medal of Freedom honorees. The president singled out Wheeler in the audience at the ceremony, adding Wheeler “is going to be made permanent” at EPA. Wheeler has served as the EPA’s acting head since July, when then-EPA administrator Scott Pruitt resigned amid ethics scandals. A former lobbyist for coal and other industries, Wheeler has a reputation as a lower-profile, methodical steward of the Trump administration’s deregulatory mission. Trump said Friday that Wheeler was doing a “fantastic job.” Report an error Policies and Standards Contact Us … [Read more...] about Trump says he will name acting EPA chief to the post
By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: October 17, 2018 at 6:03 pm | UPDATED: October 17, 2018 at 6:04 pm A note from Karen Attiah, Washington Post Global Opinions editor: I received this column from Jamal Khashoggi’s translator and assistant the day after Jamal was reported missing in Istanbul. The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together. Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen. This is the last piece of his I will edit for The Post. This column perfectly captures his commitment and passion for freedom in the Arab world. A freedom he apparently gave his life for. I will be forever grateful he chose The Post as his final journalistic home one year ago and gave us the chance to work together. Jamal Khashoggi | Washington Post I was recently online looking at the 2018 “Freedom in the World” report published by Freedom House and came to a grave realization. There is only one country in … [Read more...] about Read Jamal Khashoggi’s final column for the Post
