The Trump Administration is wasting no time in wiping the slate clean.

Less than one hour after Donald Trump was sworn in as the new President of the United States, several pages on WhiteHouse.gov relating to issues President Obama helped progress were removed. Specifically, pages relating to LGBTQ issues, Obamacare, civil rights, and climate change were removed.

Some individuals took screen shots or pointed out the issue on Twitter.

The new administration has replaced several pages and mentions related to climate change with Trump’s plans, such as “An American First Energy Plan,” and which promises to “[eliminate] harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”

Another area was replaced with more promises, this time to drill more oil and gas:

Although Trump has promised that his expansive drilling and doing away with policies such as the Climate Action Plan will actually boost the economy with more jobs, he has failed to provide any details of how this will work.

On the civil rights front, we have “Standing Up for Our Law Enforcement Community.” As Twitter user Mark merman pointed out, the page is filled with incorrect facts:

Overall, the new administration has removed all mention of these key issues and replaced them with hazy plans on energy, foreign policy, law enforcement, military, jobs, and trade deals.

Some of the policy information that was removed from the official WhiteHouse.gov website is available to view on the archived White House website here.
