Lartey wasn't the only records management analyst to complain about the absurdity and indignity of his job.

And what exactly did that job entail?

A position that previously involved reviewing, sorting and filing official documents reviewed by the President under previous administrations now requires staffers who are handy with scotch tape and have a keen eye for reassembling documents that have been physically torn apart by President Donald Trump, according to two former staffers who spoke to Politico.

"I had a letter from [Chuck] Schumer-[Trump] tore it up", Lartey says. "We thought it was a joke".

Presidential records must be preserved and transferred to the national archives under U.S. law which "places the responsibility for the custody and management of incumbent presidential records with the president".

Hollywood Icon De Niro Apologizes to Trudeau for Trump's 'Disgusting Behavior'
De Niro is one of the most respected actors in the United States with two Oscar wins for Raging Bull and The Godfather: Part II . Greg Gutfeld reacted to several recent profane criticisms of President Trump by actor Robert De Niro .

He told Politico: "We had to endure this under the Trump administration". "I hadn't messed with a puzzle in years".

Lartey said he was never given an explanation for his firing, which he said came at the end of the day on March 23.

And then, Young proceeded to demonstrate exactly what he and Lartey did.

"I guess they didn't want to get it out", said Lartey, who had worked in the White House since the Clinton administration.

Reginald Young was a senior records management analyst who worked for the USA government for more than 20 years before being sacked in April.

Young said Tuesday he can't speak as to why Trump was tearing up official documents but said he had posed questions to his immediate supervisor "for her to challenge our director to the validity of us doing this type of work".

"We literally had to spend hours per day piecing together the puzzle prior to taping them", Young told host Alisyn Camerota after going through the process in which he carefully spread out ripped pieces of paper on a desk and reconstructed them. "It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans".

Mr Lartey, who earned a salary of $66,000 and spent the first five months of the Trump administration working in the Old Executive Office, said he was asked to use Scotch tape to fix documents. "I asked them, 'Why can't you all tell me something?' I had gotten comfortable".
