Donald Trump has wasted no time in setting his minions to work rewriting reality to fit his twisted, perverted worldview. The White House website has already had its page on climate change deleted; it has been replaced with an “America First” energy policy that repeals President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and clean air and water protections.
The pages on civil rights, LGBT rights, and healthcare have also been removed.

Even more disturbing, the new energy plan reveals that Trump is planning to auction off our public lands and protected nature reserves for fossil fuel development.

The civil rights section has been replaced with a section named “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community,” and it ties in perfectly with Trump’s apocalyptic stereotypes of inner-city America. Unsurprisingly, it is littered with factual errors.
The White House site now says that "killings have risen by 50%" in D.C. That is incorrect. They were up in 2015, down in 2016. pic.twitter.com/Pjftfz89Uf

The other “policy positions” that Trump has replaced on the White House site are as follows.
It is a terrifying first glimpse into President Trump’s heinous plot to rewrite reality to suit the agenda of his billionaire buddies and their Republican puppets in Congress. His priorities are clear – strengthening and empowering the police state, ravaging our protected nature reserves for fossil fuels, pouring billions into the pockets of defense contractors and arms manufacturers and gutting the social safety net.
Look at what you’ve done, America.
