Trump left the White House in a hurry after being obsessed with trying to overturn the election

Trump did, however, manage to take at least 15 boxes of official White House records with him. 

Former President Donald Trump rushed to leave the White House last year, as he spent his final weeks in office obsessed and consumed with trying to overturn his 2020 election loss

Several books on the final days of the Trump presidency recounted how many of the president's aides and advisers had left the White House 

"At the time," The Times wrote, the aides who remained "were either preoccupied with helping him overturn the election, trying to stop him or avoiding him."

Trump did, however, manage to take multiple boxes of important records and documents out of the White House 

 His lawyers have been in negotiations with the National Archives for the boxes of records to be returned to the agency's custody.
