The federal government has launched a new website that will serve as a clearinghouse for records from former President Donald Trump’s administration.
The National Archives and Records Administration announced the website on Wednesday. Eventually, it will be a repository of archived Trump-era documents, including his White House website and social media accounts. It will also offer information about accessing other records from Trump’s tenure.
The agency maintains records going back to President Herbert Hoover’s administration, which ended in 1933.
But there are questions about how meticulous the Trump administration was about keeping records. Trump was cavalier about a law requiring their preservation. He had a habit of ripping up documents before tossing them out.
That’s led some historians and archivists to worry that there will be a gaping hole in the history of Trump’s tumultuous four years in office.
