In mid-September I spent some time reformatting an academic article I wrote on Trump’s foreign policy that will be published early next year in the journal Politics & Policy. In the process of double-checking all my sources, I discovered that some remarks and speeches on the official White House website were no longer available. Previously working links instead said, “That page cannot be found, or is located on an archived web page.” This struck me as odd and annoying. But, most of all, it strikes me as misleading. It appears that Trump wants to erase any evidence of the former members of his administration that he no longer likes. Perhaps he thinks if he deletes them from his official website everyone else will forget.
