Librarians of the Idaho state public library in the US have raised the alarm over the continuous disappearance of books that criticised President Donald Trump.

According to Bette Ammon, one of the staff members of the library who spoke with CNN on the strange development, titles of the missing book include criticism of Trump's regime, LGBTQ issues, human rights, immigration and women's suffrage, and gun rights.

The comment said: "I noticed a large volume of Books attacking our president. I am going to continue hiding these books in the most obscure places I can find to keep this propaganda out of the hands of young minds. Your liberal angst gives me great pleasure."

As a way forward, Ammon said that library management has purchased more copies of the missing books.

She said: "Right now, we have three copies of Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff. We only would have ever bought one. We have three copies of the April Ryan book and we would have only bought one of those."

Moreover, Ammon said that a sport writer, Rick Reilly, who in his book (Commander in Cheat) explained how Trump cheats on the links, has promised to bring to the library about 10 copies of the bestsellers.

She added that readers from all over the world have reacted to the issue with promises of books donations and money.
