What does "removed language from" mean here?

“After all, he disliked and feared me, and had an ally in Trump. This was underscored when the Trump campaign removed language from the Republican Party platform calling for the United States to provide Ukraine with “lethal defensive weapons”—a gift to Putin that might as well have come with a ribbon and a bow.”

    It is an odd way to say that the Trump campaign managed to change an official policy statement issued by the Republican Party. The party no longer planned for the United States to provide Ukraine with lethal defensive weapons. The party changed its statement into something less dangerous and aggressive towards Russia.
