Officials hired to tape up Trump papers

Trump paper

Solomon Lartey, who had almost 30 years' experience as a government official, said he and his colleagues would sift through large piles of shredded paper and piece them together "like a jigsaw puzzle". A former Obama staffer tells Politico her boss had a "structured" record-keeping procedure, complete with color-coded folders, while a person said to be in the know on Trump's procedure notes he simply tore up "anything that happened to be on his desk that he was done with"-even after aides warned him to stop". "It was the craziest thing ever".

Paper wars: He rips, they stick them.

A White House spokesman and a human resources director did not comment on the terminations.

Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must preserve all papers that the president touches, sending them to the National Archives for safekeeping. (It was enacted because of - wait for it - Watergate.) But White House aides have had a hard time impressing this upon President Trump, who habitually rips papers up and routinely throws them, confetti-like, in the trash or on the floor, reports Politico. Instead, aides reportedly clean up Trump's paper scraps - which range from papers that are torn in two and thrown in the trash to documents that have been ripped into tiny pieces that resemble confetti and tossed on the floor - and ship them over to the records office, according to the people familiar with the task.

"We had to endure this under the Trump administration", Young Jr. said.

Lartey and Young, who have since been dismissed, said they spent months piecing and taping together a variety of documents Trump would tear apart.

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

"That is a million-dollar question that I have yet to get an answer to", Young said. "It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans". "I asked them, 'Why can't you all tell me something?' I had gotten comfortable". "I never remember the president throwing any official paper away".

Politico noted it was reporting on a story about the men's sudden termination with no explanation when they described their job duties to the news site.
