President Trump Ain't No Think Tanker (Part II)

There is basically zero chance that President Donald Trump is going to read any think tank report during his time in office.

The reason comes from the New York Times:
While Mr. Obama liked policy option papers that were three to six single-spaced pages, [National Security Council] staff members are now being told to keep papers to a single page, with lots of graphics and maps. 
"The president likes maps," one official said.

If only think tank papers were kept to a single page, then we wouldn't have to deal with this.
