A series of now-deleted tweets published on Friday from a prominent conservative commentator provided a glimpse of the infamous whiteboard inside White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon’s White House office.

Dinesh D’Souza, who was charged with campaign-finance fraud in 2014, visited the White House Friday to promote his new book, “The Big Lie.”

Following the visit, D’Souza tweeted pictures of himself with Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, President Donald Trump’s national security aide, in Bannon’s office. He added that he signed copies for Bannon, Trump, and Gorka.

Christina Wilkie, an investigative reporter for nonprofit journalism outfit Center for Public Integrity, took a screenshot of the since-deleted tweets. Bannon’s “Make America Great Again” whiteboard, which was first revealed by The New Yorker, is visible in the background of the photos.

The top of the board reads “Withdraw from TPP” with a checkmark. The TPP refers to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal Trump railed against during the 2016 campaign. “Canadian Lumber Tariff” is also checked off. Trump announced the US would impose tariffs on lumber imports from Canada in April.

“Taxes” is circled in red, with three exclamation points. The Trump Administration has indicated that it wants to move to tax reform following the defeat of the Republican’s health care replacement bill in Congress.

“Offshoring,” “illegal immigration,” “crime,” and “welfare,” are also listed as top priorities on the whiteboard.

Here are the tweets:
