The National Archives appears to refute Trump’s statement about George HW Bush’s White House records.

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has publicly rebutted the false allegations that former President Donald Trump took or stored “substandard conditions” of presidential records when he left office. In an unusual statement Tuesday, NARA said it was false and misleading that these presidential records were in the possession of the former president or his representatives after leaving office or that the records were kept in poor condition. Fighting the government over the records he took from the White House to his Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago, on Sunday, raised an incomplete and inaccurate comparison with the handling of records by his predecessors as they left the White House. He said at a rally in Arizona that former President Bill Clinton’s records were “moved from the White House to a former car dealership in Arkansas.” And uncategorized, a poor and completely unsafe former furniture store located in a rather poor neighborhood of Chicago” and George W. Bush “stored 68 million pages in a warehouse in Texas.” In each of these cases the Presidential Library was built It was the NARA that announced where presidential records would be processed and stored during the time of the war.For example, in May 2000, the Archives found that the location chosen for Clinton’s records was Little, about 1.5 miles from the “Future Clinton Presidential Library Site.” Released a press release stating that it was a “previously foot car company” located in Rock. NARA has negotiated a lease and announced that the 42,000-square-foot facility will remain operational until the library opens. Perhaps the most dramatic accusation Trump made was George Former President HW Bush said, “Millions of documents were put together with an old bowling alley and an old, broken Chinese restaurant at the time. And there were broken front doors and broken windows. Other than that, it was very safe.” As Politifact pointed out, it is true that George HW Bush White House documents and memorabilia were kept in “old bowling alleys” and “where they used to be the kitchens of Chinese restaurants,” pointing to a 1990s Associated Press clip. While his library was being built in College Station, Texas. But it was far safer than Trump’s surrender, the AP said: “A uniformed security guard patrols the building. There are closed circuit television monitors and sophisticated electronic detectors along the walls and doors. “Some prints are classified as confidential and will be kept for several years,” he said. The Bush Records were overseen, cataloged and compiled by NARA’s acting director and ten researchers. The bowling alley was lined with shelves for campaign memorabilia, and a shelf at Lane 58 contained boxes of Bush White House documents, the Associated Press reported. .NARA said in a statement that Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and former Presidents Ronald Reagan received “physical and legal custody” of presidential records from the administration at the time of their departure. The National Archives explained that the records were first moved to a temporary facility leased by the General Administration (GSA) and located nearby where the Presidential Library “built for NARA” would be located. Temporary facilities will be managed and staffed “exclusively by NARA staff,” NARA said. latest news
