    The section dedicated to the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) community on the White House's official website disappeared soon after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th US president.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik), David Burghardt — The caption "Sorry, no results found for 'LGBT'," is displayed after doing a search on the White House's official website on Friday. The same response occurs when doing a search for "gay" or "lesbian."

    When users go to the previous White House LGBT url, whitehouse.gov/lgbt, users receive a message: “The requested page ‘/lgbt’ could not be found.”

    It was unclear if the LGBT section was deleted or if it was undergoing updates under the new Trump administration.

    During his presidential campaign, Trump vowed to protect the gay community.
