    Inside the ‘Lord of the Flies’ factionalism now plaguing Trumpland : Distrust, whisper campaigns and a bit of backstabbing are rampant as aides scramble for access and power. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/04/01/factionalism-trump-lord-of-flies-478811
    Trump spokesperson Jason Miller, who is in regular contact with the former president and the aides working for him currently, disputed claims of friction inside Trump’s orbit. Instead, Miller said he’s never seen such harmony.
    “Right now, it’s like a daycare if you took all the adults away. There’s virtually nobody with organizational skills left,” said a person familiar with Trump’s operation.

    How Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations
    Online donors were guided into weekly recurring contributions. Demands for refunds spiked. Complaints to banks and credit card companies soared. But the money helped keep Donald Trump’s struggling campaign afloat.(NYT 4/3/21) https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/03/us/politics/trump-donations.html
    Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign used pre-checked boxes and obscure design on fundraising emails to wring millions of dollars out of unwitting supporters, detonating a “money bomb” which allowed the Republican to compete against Joe Biden in the last months of the race.
    The practice, pursued by the campaign and WinRed, a for-profit company, was detailed in an extensive report by the New York Times on Saturday. It is legal, but Ira Rheingold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates, told the paper it was “unfair, unethical and inappropriate”. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/apr/03/trump-money-bomb-scheme-republican-fundraising-2020

    “The National Archives and Records Administration is a federal agency responsible for preserving historically significant federal records, including tweets from senior government officials. For example, former Trump White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders turned over control of her official Twitter account to NARA when she left office. Leaving tweets on Twitter makes them easily accessible by the public.
    But Politico reports that Twitter won’t allow anything like this to happen with former President Donald Trump’s now-banned @realDonaldTrump account.
    “Given that we permanently suspended @realDonaldTrump, the content from the account will not appear on Twitter as it did previously or as archived administration accounts do currently, regardless of how NARA decides to display the data it has preserved,” a Twitter spokesman told Politico. “Administration accounts that are archived on the service are accounts that were not in violation of the Twitter Rules.”
    Twitter permanently banned Donald Trump from its platform two days after the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. Twitter concluded that his tweets on that day had promoted or glorified violence.” https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2021/04/twitter-wont-let-federal-archivists-host-trumps-tweets-on-twitter/
