White House Website Erases Climate Change, Civil Rights Pages

HeadlineJan 23, 2017

On Friday, the official White House website was also completely replaced, with nearly every reference to climate change erased from the site. The only remaining reference to climate change on the new WhiteHouse.gov website appears on the first of his six “issues” pages, which reads, “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan.” The Trump administration also took down the White House website’s pages on civil rights and a fact sheet on the Violence Against Women Act. The civil rights page was replaced by a page entitled “Standing Up for Our Law Enforcement Community,” which calls for “more law enforcement,” “building a border wall” and “ending sanctuary cities.” It also reads, “The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it.”
