Has Trump announced a Presidential Library?

I expect all manner of childish insults but I am curious. A Presidential Library is a given, even one-term failures like Carter and Bush 41 and disgraced Nixon have libraries. You'd expect him to want a place to toot his horn about Warp Speed and the Middle East peace process, and take credit for everything else. But I've not heard a word. Anyone know?

It would just be orange-stained printouts of old tweets.

Serious answer... He (and his team) honestly thought he was going to win again, so nothing is planned yet. Obama's library wasn't announced until 2014, well into his second term, and it's still not done.
Give it time.

He's already announced the first six books for the library.

I'm sure it will also have an upside-down bible.

There are no architectural plans, no actual conceptional idea of what the library will be but Trump did issue a statement that his goal was to raise two billion dollars for his library.

The grift never ends.

I'm sure that he and his family are working to hard to figure out how to maximize the amount money they can pocket from scamming their donors.

Re: Has Trump announced a Presidential Library?

Just like everything else with trump, something grand and extravagant will be announced, but it'll just a be a ploy to grift money from his idiot supporters, promising something huge and delivering nothing.

If thereís one thing Trump loves itís having his name on buildings. Thereís no doubt heíll build a library, the question is how much of those earmarked donations will actually go towards it.

My guess is Trump will use a fraction of the Library money to actually build the library and the rest will be siphoned to himself and his family.

Re: Has Trump announced a Presidential Library?

Trump would love to have the biggest, most extravagant memorial to himself. He would also love to keep that money.

Which way will he jump?

If nothing else, he'll somehow bankrupt it.

Re: Has Trump announced a Presidential Library?

American Library Journal Report Weekly is reporting that there are no plans for a Trump Presidential Library ... there are plans for at least FIFTY "Trump President's Libraries." In a most unusual break from tradition, but not from Trump's ground-breaking leadership style, Trump Organization staffers have leaked the plans for at least one library in each state.

A leaked draft of a press release from John Barron states: "In an effort to bring tourism dollars and educational greatliness to all states, Trump Organization will be licensing out the Donald J. Trump (tm) name to libraries who wish to become Trump President's Libraries. For a reasonable and modest fee, ANY library can become a Trump President's Library and enhance the educational level of their citizens." The press release goes on to discuss plans for exclusive educational courses that will be made available (for a fee, of course) to participating libraries, including "real estate, asset management, entrepreneurship, and wealth creation." The release also indicates a series of civics and political courses "which will tell the real story of modern American politics as well as teach enhanced counting skills."

Off the record, other staffers have provided insights into the physical structure of the Trump President's Libraries. Public libraries who become Trump President's Libraries will have to build walls around their facility to keep homeless people and immigrants out. Each library will be required to prominently feature the Trump name on the tallest part of the building. Additionally, any maintenance or construction must be provided by the Trump Organization's construction branch (at discounted rates). Each library will feature a series of rotating museum-like-quality displays from Trump's time in office, such as "A White House is the Best House to Stand By", "How to Eat Like a President in the Drive-Thru", "This Button Brings a Coke", and "How the Grinch Stole My Election."

It is worth noting the name of these franchised libraries is not "Trump Presidential Library and Museum" as that is a very specific designation for federally maintained facilities. Rather, just like "The Office of the Former President" and a second-term, it is a concoction devised by Trump himself.

Requests for the libraries have already begun flooding in to Trump Organization headquarters. Texas Senator Ted Cruz has already filed paperwork to request the first library for Texas in Cancun. Lindsay Graham has begun drafting a request to host one in South Carolina, saying "Enough is enough, I just want to be helpful, count me in!" Even Mitch McConnell is trying to get in on the action. As the Minority Leader, he is trying to tap into state funds from Kentucky which are designated to enhance minority learning opportunities in public education. "We are in the minority, and we need this great opportunity to promote education."

Thatís about as on-brand as anything they could come up with for a Trump Library.

If all of the Trump administrationís wishes are on the outside, what are they going to put inside his libraries?

Give it time.
Thank you for the one useful answer.

As for the rest of you, how pathological do you have to be when someone dares you to act childish and you do it anyway? If fishing was as easy as trolling Trump haters, the Deadliest Catch guys would have their quote in a day.

And now I sit back and watch you continue to prove me right.
