White House website gets face-lift
Dec. 14, 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House's website has gotten a face-lift 11 months into President Donald Trump's tenure.
The White House says the updated site features a more user-friendly design and more intuitive search capabilities, as well as a cleaner and more elegant display.
The Trump administration says the new website will save taxpayers $3 million annually. Officials say the earlier version of WhiteHouse.gov was built using the same infrastructure as the website for President Barack Obama's White House, which cost $6 million a year to maintain. The new website, which was developed by an in-house White House team with help from an outside vendor, will cost 60 percent less, officials said.
The website went live at 5 p.m. Thursday.
