After a year, Trump White House Website Still has no information On Civil Rights

 

Shortly after Pres. Donald Trump was sworn into office, he ordered the White House website to be completely overhauled to reflect the priorities of the new administration. Many government officials and thousands of private citizens noticed there were dozens of topics not listed on the website anymore. When asked, the WH blamed the disappearance on technical issues associated with the transition… but we see now that’s not the case. Now, under this administration, many of the basic principals this country stands on have suddenly disappeared from the WH website completely. Namely Civil Liberties and all mention of Civil Rights…and that should deeply concern you.

 

So what did we find when we searched civil rights on WhiteHouse.gov?

 

We found an article on President Lincoln.

What you find when you search civil rights on White House. gov

 

In stark contrast, the Obama White House listed “civil rights” first among many “high priority issues” on its website. The new Trump White House website does not even mention the word civil rights at all but instead it discusses how  “Standing up for our law enforcement community.” and  “The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong  further stating ” Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter.”

 

Here are more critical issues that have been removed from WhiteHouse.gov.

1. Information For People With Disabilities Has Been Removed From WhiteHouse.Gov

A little button at the bottom of the Obama White House website provided information for people with disabilities — including a White House video tour in sign language and an explanation of links on the site that allowed users to use audible screen readers, closed captioning and other services.

Obama apparently took that button with him when he left because it is no longer present on the Trump White House site. However, that button is likely to come back. Federal law requires government websites to be accessible to people with disabilities.

 

2. All Information On Climate Change Has Been Completely Removed From WhiteHouse.gov

The Trump White House website now says “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.” These are two contentious Obama administration rules that President Trump can’t simply undo by himself; both will require either congressional action to change the underlying law or a long regulatory process to reverse the policy.

3. Anyone who comes to the WH.gov will see a Huge  military build-up is coming

The new White House website commits to “making our military strong again,” including getting rid of the across-the-board budget cuts known as “the sequester” and investing in ballistic missile defense — long a priority of Republican administrations. Trump’s website promises to “develop a state-of-the-art missile defense system to protect against missile-based attacks from states like Iran and North Korea.”

4. We also found little to no information on healthcare, and dozens of other topics.
