Look: Did You Notice Criminal Justice Reform, LGBT Rights, Climate Change and Health Care Were Immediately Removed From WhiteHouse.Gov?

And the scary pages put up in their place.

Published January 20, 2017

Just seconds after Donald Trump was sworn in as president, the official White House website was updated to remove all mentions of “climate change,” reported New York Magazine.

Instead of using the term “climate change," the Trump team posted Trump’s America First Energy Plan. In short, the plan calls for rolling back regulations set forth by Obama, including “harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”

The plan also says President Trump will use U.S. energy sourcing while refocusing “the EPA on its essential mission of protecting our air and water.”

Also gone from the site are the criminal justice reform, LGBT, health-care and civil rights sections. 

  1. When you try to visit the previous criminal justice reform page on whitehouse.gov, an error message appears
  2. The same message appears on the lgbt page
  3. And the page for health care
  4. And civil rights

    On other pages of the site,  the Trump administration advertises itself as a “law-and-order administration.” In the “Standing Up for Our Law Enforcement Community” section, the Trump administration says they will end the “dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America” and speaks of the dangers of “rioters,” “looters” and “violent disruptors.”

  5. It should also be noted that, on the site, the Trump administration includes false stats about Washington, D.C., crime rates
