For White House, new tenants mean new website
The White House became home to new tenants Friday -- and a new website.
Along with the inauguration of a new president came a new look for whitehouse.gov, which features an "America First" energy plan, "America First" foreign policy and a section on "trade deals working for all Americans."
Gone from the site are any mentions of some topics the administration of President Barack Obama made a focus, like climate change and protecting LGBT rights.
David Kilmnick, president of the Woodbury-based LGBT Network, said the removal of information related to LGBT rights on the White House website is symbolic of how the Trump administration views the LGBT community.
"What President Trump is trying to do is to erase LGBT people from this country," Kilmnick charged. "It didn't even take an hour for President Trump and Vice President Pence to remove LGBT people from the website."
Some Trump supporters told News 12 Long Island that people should expect a new website with the arrival of a new president.
The previous website is still available as an archive, as are those of presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
