Trump's habit of ripping up documents a headache for record-keepers

Trump's habit of ripping up documents a headache for record-keepers

As career staffers who were abruptly forced to resign earlier this year, Solomon Lartey and Reginald Young Jr. told Politico that they were paid almost $66,000 a year to tape back together official documents that went through the Oval Office.

Mr Lartey said documents he has had to tape up include a letter from Democrat Chuck Schumer, which Trump had ripped up.

"I had a letter from Schumer - he tore it up", he said referring to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer. "It was the craziest thing ever". "We used to have to piece together all of these torn papers, and we weren't supposed to tell anybody".

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.

Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House is mandated to preserve all documents that the president touches.

Presidential records can take several forms, including electronic media, like tweets.

President Donald Trump ripped apart documents that needed to be preserved so often the White House had administration employees whose jobs were to glue them back together again.

Lartey said his supervisors "only wanted a few people" involved in the painstaking process of putting Trump's papers back together - a process he likened to "an adult puzzle".

Both Mr Lartey and Mr Young had their jobs terminated abruptly in the spring, Politico reported.

Solomon Lartey, 54, who earned $66,000 (£50,000) prior to his dismissal in March, gave a similar account of Trump's alleged bad habit.

The hostages are being held in the internal courtyard of the building, which contains a mix of offices and residential apartments. The hostage-taker also claimed he had an accomplice outside the building with a bomb, according to Lefebvre.

One of his colleagues, Reginald Young Jr., who worked as a senior records management analyst, said that during over two decades of government service, he had never been asked to do such a thing. He said his entire department was dedicated to the task of taping paper back together in the opening months of the Trump administration.

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

"I was stunned", Lartey said.

'We're making more than $60,000 (£45,000) a year, we need to be doing far more important things than this. "Some nights, I cried and I was mad because I got comfortable". "I never remember the president throwing any official paper away".
