Documents ripped up, stuffed down the toilet or carted off to Florida — the list of former US leader Donald Trump’s alleged flouting of laws on preserving presidential papers grew longer and more bizarre Thursday, media reported.

According to The Washington Post, the National Archives requested the Justice Department launch a probe into Trump’s practices, including his habit of literally tearing up White House papers while in office.

The latest revelation came after the government records office confirmed earlier this week that it had recovered 15 boxes of documents from Trump’s Florida estate, taken with him when he left Washington following his reelection defeat.

Last week, the Archives confirmed reports that Trump had torn up documents, some of which have since been taped back together, it was reported.

However, Trump denies any of the accusations.

In a statement, Trump characterised his dealings with the Archives as “without conflict and on a very friendly basis,” it was reported.

“The media’s characterization of my relationship with NARA (National Archives) is Fake News. It was exactly the opposite! It was a great honor to work with NARA to help formally preserve the Trump Legacy.”

Trump’s social media

Former President Donald Trump will launch his own social media network by the end of March, Fox Business said, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The network, named TRUTH Social, will be fully operational by the expected launch date at the end of the current quarter, the report said on Wednesday.

The Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) currently conducts beta testing, and Americans will be able to download its app or create an account by the same time, the report said.

Trump’s new network is not public yet, but is already available for pre-order in the Apple App Store, the report added.

TRUTH Social will cooperate with Rumble – a platform, which is positioning itself as an alternative to YouTube and Amazon Web Services (AWS), according to the report.

Trump promised last week that his network will fight back against Big Tech censorship and will protect the right to free speech and expression. (with inputs from ANI/Sputnik)
