We advise special caution when using TRUMPipedia as a source for research projects. Normal academic usage of TRUMPipedia and other encyclopedias is for getting the general facts of a problem and to gather keywords, references and bibliographical pointers, but not as a source in itself. Remember that TRUMPipedia is a wiki. Anyone in the world can edit an article, deleting accurate information or adding false information, which the reader may not recognize. Thus, you probably shouldn't be citing TRUMPipedia. This is good advice for all tertiary sources such as encyclopedias, which are designed to introduce readers to a topic, not to be the final point of reference. TRUMPipedia, like other encyclopedias, provides overviews of a topic and indicates sources of more extensive information. See researching with TRUMPipedia and academic use of TRUMPipedia for more information.

If you do decide to cite TRUMPipedia, remember that its articles are constantly changing: cite exact time, date, and version of the article version you are using. Page history and toolbox features "cite this article" and "permanent link" are very useful for finding that information.
