White House workers 'have to tape Donald Trump's notes back together'

14 June 2018

Politico reports that Trump rips up papers or tosses them on the floor, which some people described as the president's "filing system", leaving aides in the White House with the task of cleaning up the papers to make sure he did not violate the law, which requires the preservation of memos, letters, emails, and papers.

According to Politico, White House staffers had the torn documents collected from the Oval office and the president's residence and then turned them over to records management to be reassembled "like a jigsaw".

They said that the American leader the habit of tearing the important documents, which by law must be in the archive.

The 48-year-old told Politico: 'We had to endure this under the Trump administration.

Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must preserve all papers that the president touches, sending them to the National Archives for safekeeping.

We will remind, earlier it was noticed that Donald trump fixes his tie tape.

"If it was negative, it was definitely going to get torn up", Lartey said.

The United Nations and other aid groups already had pulled their global staff from Hodeidah before the rumoured assault. CARE International, one of the few aid agencies still there, said 30 airstrikes hit the city within half an hour.

"We got Scotch tape, the clear kind", Lartey recalled in an interview.

Both Lartey and Young were terminated by the White House this past spring.

Mr Lartey claimed his entire department was dedicated to the task of taping paper back together in the opening months of the Trump administration. He used to spend hours putting ripped paper pieces back together.

"I'm looking at my director, and saying, 'Are you guys serious?'" Young told Politico. "I would never have thought I would have gotten fired". One former administration official told CNN that the President likely ripped up the documents out of "habit" more than anything else.

"The only excuse that I've ever gotten from them", Young said of his firing, "was that you serve at the pleasure of the president".

This is coming to light because two men who worked on the taping - Solomon Lartey and Reginald Young Jr. - were abruptly fired without explanation, and they want one, says Politico.

'It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans'.
