The WhiteHouse.gov LGBT Page Already Gone



WhiteHouse.gov has already received an extensive overhaul even though this is only Donald Trump's first day as the President of the United States of America. ::Thunder, lightning, maniacal cackle, disappear in a cloud of smoke::. Of the first things to go is the LGBT page of the website, while other information about global warming and civil rights has been redirected 1984 style. Here are some of the biggest changes already made to WhiteHouse.gov: Via The Daily Beast

The page on climate change was replaced with a page entitled “An America First Energy Plan” that ignores climate change entirely and says, “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”

The new “America First Foreign Policy” page made no mention of Russia or China, insteading discussing the defeat of ISIS and the renegotiation of NAFTA and other trade deals. “If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA,” the page read. The same language was repeated on the new “Trade Deals Working for All Americans” page on Whitehouse.gov.

The page on civil rights was replaced with a page entitled “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community” that replaces concerns with how police act with a demand for more cops. It also paints predominantly black inner cities as shooting galleries.



Unlike those pages, the LGBT section is gone altogether. The LGBT page on the White House website was created by the Obama administration and provided resources for gay youths, including the "It Gets Better" campaign, and also highlighted historical achievements in LGBT rights. This is all no more. Considering that everyone visits WhiteHouse.gov ten times a day, this is all a very good use of Donald's time.
