Anyone looking up the White House LGBT page shortly after Donald Trump’s swearing in found only a smiling photo of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
Then a few minutes later, the page was gone altogether.
Under his predecessor Barack Obama, historic gains were highlighted on the page.
They included same-sex marriage becoming legal and the end of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.
It also highlighted Obama’s Executive Order forbidding federal contractors and subcontractors to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Trump has vowed to nullify many of Obama’s executive orders and is against same-sex marriage.
Pence, as governor of Indiana, signed a law that made it legal for businesses to discriminate against gay people based on ‘religious beliefs.’
