Huffpost:

The U.S. Postal Service could look a lot more like a private corporation in a few years.

The current postmaster general, Megan Brennan, plans to step down from her position in early 2020 after a career in the Postal Service and five years as the first woman to head it. The agency’s board of governors, which is now stocked with a quorum of Senate-approved Trump nominees, will name her successor.

Like other close watchers of the agency, Ronnie Stutts, president of the National Association of Rural Letter Carriers, suspects the board will look outside the Postal Service for its next leader, perhaps to someone in the business world. Stutts’ biggest fear is that it will choose someone eager to spin pieces of the service off to the private sector.

After all, as Fortune recently reported, that’s what the White House has recommended ? to turn the independent federal agency into an investor-owned utility.

Trump would certainly be fine with the postal service becoming an investor owned utility, or having large pieces of it taken over by the private sector, breaking it up into private companies much like what was done with the phone company.  Trump has also been in favor of privatizing the camp grounds in our National Parks.  He's all about big business, not small business but big business, the kind that his family, and very wealthy friends can benefit financially from.
