Shortly after Donald Trump was sworn in as the nation’s 45th president, the White House’s page on climate change, a creation of the Obama administration was completely removed.
A cached version of the page shows that President Obama’s administration had used the page to advertise his plan to reduce America’s carbon footprint and have America participate in “global effort to combat climate change.” The page said the President has taken unprecedented action to build the foundation for a clean energy economy, tackle the issue of climate change, and protect our environment.
At press time, the link to the old Obama administration White House page publicizing a plan to combat climate change forwards to a page that allows you to sign up for updates from President Donald J. Trump.
The Trump administration has instead published a page that lays out its “America First Energy Plan”. The page states, “The Trump Administration is committed to energy policies that lower costs for hardworking Americans and maximize the use of American resources, freeing us from dependence on foreign oil”. “A brighter future depends on energy policies that stimulate our economy, ensure our security, and protect our health. Under the Trump Administration’s energy policies, that future can become a reality.”
It is standard protocol for incoming administrations to delete all existing materials on the official site. Other Obama causes such as LGBT rights, immigration and Obamacare have also been axed in favor of what Trump officials call a more inclusive agenda beyond just special rights.
