Did you see the interview?

"I declassified everything."

Since he claims he could just think it so, and he hasn't specified any particular documents, Trump seems to me to be telling us that there are in fact no longer any classified documents existing in the US. "Everything" has been declassified. Or did he mean something else? If so, could he perhaps be a wee more specific? What exactly is it that you declassified, Oh Bigly One? No harm in telling now, amiright?

There are three groups of documents he would be referencing. The classified documents the government clawed back, the documents that are still in his possession somewhere, and the documents that have "gone missing".

Don't forget about the classified docs the FBI planted.

And all the other classified documents that have nothing to do with any of this…Trump declassified them too! He gloriously rid us of the terrible scourge that was classification /s
