One of the most important stewards of the internet has launched a new archive that can only be described as big league. 

The Internet Archive this week expanded its Trump Archive, a collection that now includes more than 700 speeches, interviews, and debates that feature President-elect Donald Trump.

The Trump Archive is searchable and organized by types of videos, including specific television shows Trump has appeared on, making it easier than ever for researchers or curious citizens to dig through what Trump has said and when.

Launched over two decades ago, the Internet Archive saves more than 300 million web pages each week. It also provides tools like the Wayback Machine, which lets users preserve web pages and social media posts in case they get deleted or altered, and the Open Library, a collection of more than 3 million free ebooks. 

In November, the Internet Archive announced that it would launch the Internet Archive Canada, a complete backup of its saved data created to avoid any possible attempts to tamper with its system by Trump or Republicans in Congress.
