[UPDATED] LGBTQ rights, climate change? Gone from White House website


[UPDATED]The Trump administration has immediately begun omitting discussion of work that’s been done on the pressing fronts of LGBTQ rights, climate change, health care, and other matters that were heavily contested during the election.

Just hours after the inauguration, news sources began reporting that there is no mention of these issues at the new site. It’s not uncommon for major changes to hit the government site during times of administrative turnover, and each incoming administration puts up its own website and archives the site of the previous administration.

Obama's site has been archived. But it remains to be seen if these issues will receive a mention on the site in the near future.

This article has been corrected; a previous version said that mention of the issues has been deleted. Their discussion remains on the archived Obama site.
