Trump tried to “purify” his time as president by burning records

White House documents – from schedules to sensitive memos – were regularly ripped into quarters and tossed into trash bins or on the floor of Air Force One, or stuffed into “burn bags” to be incinerated at the Pentagon, only for aides to sort through the contents to determine which bits needed to be preserved under federal law…

Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must maintain all documents touched by the president to be preserved by the National Archives and Records Administration.

The former president’s reportedly relentless habit of destroying sensitive documents was clearly in violation of the law, according to Courtney Chartier, president of the Society of American Archivists.

She told the newspaper: “There is no ignorance of these laws. There are White House manuals about the maintenance of these records.”

So, which is it? Trump can’t read…Trump can’t draw logical conclusions from regulations…or he just doesn’t give a shit about the office he held [courtesy of ignorant American voters]?
