It is a well document thing that Trump forces many of his employees, down to the lowest levels, to sign non-disclosure agreements and also agree to never say anything negative about Trump, the Trump Organization, or the Trump family, for all time. In essence, if you write your autobiography 50 years in the future, and mention Trump, he or his estate could come in and sue you. Whether such a suit would be successful is beside the point because the threat of lawyers to a low-income person effectively silences them.
Now that Trump is about to become our Fearless Leader, I wonder if he will be requiring similar agreements to all his staff? Perhaps in time it will be a more general thing that all Federal Employees will have to agree to? I wonder what the legality of any of this would be. Any thoughts?
Note, this being not legal is not a sign Trump won’t try it.
