package main

import (

func main() {
	fmt.Println(strings.Trim("2016-11-22T00:26:00+0000", "+0000"))

The result is 2016-11-22T00:26:, but I expected 2016-11-22T00:26:00.
Is this a bug or an expected one?

The second parameter of strings.Trim is a cutset. So if you use "+0000" you are asking Trim to trim every "+" and "0", from the left and from the right.

For example:

strings.Trim("1abc2", "12")

returns "abc".

So yes, that output is expected.
