From Colorado Politics:

For months, Democrats have shouted that President Trump wants to “destroy the Post Office” and/or privatize it. Congressional Democrats first pushed for a USPS bailout in April; as Republicans and the Trump administration resisted, the Democrats started crying more about this supposed anti-USPS agenda.

Now, as we get closer to November, they’ve ramped up these attacks.  Last week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed Republicans, led by Trump, are “trying to undo” USPS because “they want to interfere with the election.  But,” she added, “they’ve been after the post office for a while. Why? Because they want to privatize it.”

Yet, Trump has never once suggested USPS be privatized.  On the contrary, in 2018, his Postal Reform Commission suggested a number of changes. Not one included privatization.
