Trump's filing system is unbelievable for a sane person

"Meet the guys who tape Trump's papers back together: The president's unofficial 'filing system' involves tearing up documents into pieces, even when they're supposed to be preserved," by Politico's Annie Karni:

"White House aides realized early on that they were unable to stop Trump from ripping up paper after he was done with it and throwing it in the trash or on the floor."
"One person familiar with how Trump operates in the Oval Office said he would rip up 'anything that happened to be on his desk that he was done with.' Some aides advised him to stop, but the habit proved difficult to break."
"Staffers had the fragments of paper collected from the Oval Office as well as the private residence and send it over to records management across the street from the White House ... to reassemble."

And what's more important is that these presidential archivists were FIRED.

Hint... criminal enterprises don't like keeping incriminating documents around. Despite there being LAWS requiring it in the case of The Don.

Former archivist here. Trump ripping up documentation, and disrespecting and then firing professionals doing noble work is both unsurprising and abhorrent.

Obviously the Presidential Records Act has no teeth, but then again, it wasn't enacted with the intention of having to deal with a toddler as President.
