ON MAILING THE BOOK TO MR. DONALD TRUMP
The Law 44 U.S.C. Chapter 22 states that The United States shall reserve and retain complete ownership, possession, and control of Presidential records (defined as “documentary materials…created or received by the President”). The records may not be destroyed or disposed up unless they are deemed to “no longer have administrative, historical, informational, or evidentiary value” but only if “the President obtains the views, in writing, of the Archivist concerning the proposed disposal of such Presidential records.” Therefore, we are confident that the book will be received and archived in the United States National Archive.
