Officials hired to tape up Trump papers

Officials hired to tape up Trump papers

They had the fragments of paper collected from the Oval Office and the White House's private residence and send to records management office across the street from the White House to be re-assembled.

Another unnamed sourced told Politico that Trump would tear up "anything that happened to be on his desk that he was done with", and that aides were unable to prompt the president to break his habit.

President Donald Trump has an unusual habit.

It has been reported that the USA president regularly tears up papers he is legally required to keep, meaning staff have no choice but to somehow retrieve them.

He told Politico it was like a "jigsaw puzzle". "We got Scotch tape, the clear kind..."

So they enlisted records management staff to piece them back together, according to a report from Politico.

Politico first reported the efforts made by record-keeping officials in the Trump administration to tape back together papers Trump destroyed. However, earlier this year the two staffers said they were abruptly fired without being given a reason, and they are still seeking an explanation. Lartey, who had almost 30 years of experience and made $65,000 a year, said the papers they would receive included notated newspaper clippings and letters from members of Congress.

"I had a letter from Schumer - he tore it up", he told Politico. "It was the craziest thing ever".

Lartey said his entire department would have to tape together paper that the president had torn to pieces.

"I guess they didn't want to get it out", said Lartey, who had worked in the White House since the Clinton administration.

"I'm looking at my director, and saying, 'Are you guys serious?'", Mr Young said.

'It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans'. "I never remember the president throwing any official paper away".

The documents included memos, letters, including one from Sen. Documents would go out to the president and then come back to the staff secretary's office in the same folder for distribution and handling.

Reginald Young was a senior records management analyst who worked for the U.S. government for more than 20 years before being sacked in April.
