Last Updated Jan 20, 2017 3:41 PM EST During Barack Obama’s presidency, if you typed whitehouse.gov/lgbt into your browser, you reached a page highlighting the administration’s victories and policy changes regarding LGBT rights. It outlined historic court victories and even featured campaigns like the It Gets Better Project to help LGBT youth.Today, however -- just hours after President Donald J. Trump took the oath of office as the United States’ 45th president -- if you type in whitehouse.gov/lgbt, you are redirected to a new “transitionsplash” page.The new page simply invites people to “sign up for updates from President Donald J. Trump.” It makes no mention of LGBT rights. In fact, it appears the White House’s LGBT rights feed has disappeared completely.Vice President Mike Pence is, of course, a highly controversial figure among the LGBT community. He publicly opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He famously … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Moments after Donald Trump became president, the White House’s LGBT rights page disappeared
If Donald Trump becomes president of the United States, the billionaire businessman promises to levy enormous tariffs on any Chinese products entering the country. "I would do a tax. And the tax, let me tell you what the tax should be...the tax should be 45 percent," Trump said in a meeting with the New York Times' editorial board on Thursday. The GOP front-runner justified his flat tariff proposal saying that "the only power that we have with China is massive trade." "I would tax China on products coming in," he said. "I would do a tariff, yes -- and they do it to us." And though the real estate mogul would identify himself as "a free trader," Trump added that "it's got to be reasonably fair." But even if the billionaire businessman won the 2016 election, his ability to influence such tariffs would be limited: The president cannot impose taxes -- only Congress can. And Trump's proposals could fly in the face of current WTO trade agreements, which discourage raising agreed-upon … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Donald Trump wants huge tariffs on Chinese exports to the U.S.

NEW YORK -- Vladimir Putin’s spokesman said Thursday the Russian president is really hoping for improved relations with the United States when Donald Trump becomes president, describing the two men as “very much alike” in how they see the world. Russia hopes “for their good personal relationship,” Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with The Associated Press. Peskov cautioned, however, that it will take time to restore trust in relations that are at their lowest point in decades. Suspicions about Trump’s relationship with Putin’s government dogged his presidential campaign, in large part because the United States accused Russia of hacking into Democratic Party email systems in an apparent effort to influence the outcome of the election. Peskov said Russian experts were in contact with some members of Trump’s staff during the campaign, but he reiterated that the Russian government and security agencies had nothing to do with the … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Vladimir Putin aide: Donald Trump, Russia leader “very much alike” in worldview
