WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — When former President Donald Trump left office last year and headed south for his Mar-a-Lago Club, he took with him several boxes of official White House records and memorabilia that should have been given to the National Archives, the Washington Post reported.
The National Archives recently had to recover the documents from Trump's Palm Beach estate, three sources told the newspaper.
Among the items recovered included correspondence with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which Trump once described as "love letters," and a letter that former President Barack Obama left for his successor in 2017, the newspaper reported.
Taking the items would appear to be a violation of the Presidential Records Act, which requires White House officials to maintain and preserve official documents.
Some former Trump aides told the newspaper they don't believe Trump was acting with criminal intent.
