Along with a new president, the nation got a new White House web page on Friday — and the changes included the elimination of all mentions of "climate change" and LGBT policies.

To some Internet users, the changes appeared to wipe out the Obama administration, "tweets and all," CNN reported.

Some social media posters were shocked that the website's sections on LGBT, civil rights and healthcare suddenly disappeared, New York magazine reported.

And instead of a climate change policy, there was an "America First Energy Plan."

The pages and data disappeared — but are not gone. All digital data from President Barack Obama's tenure was moved to its archived website.

As explained in a pre-election blog post at the Obama White House website, all digital properties were started fresh for the Trump administration.

"Similar to the Clinton and Bush White House websites, President Obama's WhiteHouse.gov will be preserved on the web and frozen after January 20th and made available at ObamaWhiteHouse.gov," former White House digital staffer Kori Schulman wrote, CNN reported.

"The incoming White House will receive the WhiteHouse.gov domain and all content that has been posted to WhiteHouse.gov during the Obama administration will be archived with NARA."
