Donald Trump has been known to be reckless when it comes to his use of social media and he doesn't look to be changing his tone anytime soon. In his latest tweet, the president has set his sights on the post office.

Trump on post office

It all started during the early days of his campaign for president. After Donald Trump labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," the majority of the mainstream media hit back with heavy criticism, which only increased as the election went forward. In an attempt to create his own narrative independent of the press, Trump used social media to push his agenda and routinely bash the media, Democrats, Hollywood critics, and even members of his own Republican Party.

Since his inauguration last January, the former host of "The Apprentice" has only increased his use of social media, which was evident in his most recent tweet on December 29 when he decided to go after a new target in the form of the United States Post Office.

Taking to his Twitter feed on Friday morning, Donald Trump ripped into the United States Post Office. "Why is the United States Post Office, which is losing many billions of dollars a year, while charging Amazon and others so little to deliver their packages, making Amazon richer and the Post Office dumber and poorer?" Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Should be charging MUCH MORE!" As expected, the president openly calling for the post office to raise their rates didn't go over well on Twitter.

Twitter backlash

In response to the president's tweet, those who oppose Donald Trump were quick to fire back. "Before he bashes the Postal Service, he should consider that it is subsidizing rural regions, which are more expensive to serve because people in the country are spread out. It’s like a charity for remote regions," Walter Shaub wrote.

"The Post Office charges Amazon and others less because they buy in BULK.

It's a business strategy that many companies use. They make more money in the long run by giving Amazon a break. This is passed along to us, the shoppers!" one Twitter user wrote. "What inspired this bizarre tweet? Out of nowhere you decide to go after USPS?" another tweet read.

"Excuse me Mr President did u forget that more poor people depends in mailing things to our love ones like to PR for instance.

What a shame!" an additional tweet added. "Government is NOT A BUSINESS. Your motives are readiness and service levels, not profit. The two are literally diametrically opposed," a follow-up tweet stated.
