In a series of tweets on Inauguration Day before Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the National Park Service issued a series of tweets that appeared to disapprove of Trump and his incoming administration. In retweeting a post by reporter Binyamin Appelbaum of the New York Times, it appeared to highlight the turnout at the turnout today as compared to that of the 2009 inauguration of Barack Obama.

The first had a link to an article about the removal of the pages dedicated to civil rights, healthcare, and climate change, specifically highlighting the turnout at his inauguration. The first retweet linked to an article about the White House website removing webpages for civil rights, climate change and healthcare. Currently, the National Park Service is led by Jonathan Jarvis: an Obama appointee who began in tenure in 2009.

The NPS twitter account retweeted a post by Anne Trumble, who is described on her twitter page as a farm girl and landscape/urban designer. "Civil rights, climate change, and health care scrubbed clean from White House website. Not a trace."
