Obama Criticized for Withholding Visitor Logs
Uploaded on Jun 24, 2009
President Obama has embraced Bush administration justifications for denying public access to White House visitor logs even as advisers say they are reviewing the policy of keeping secret the official record of comings and goings.

President Donald Trump will not disclose private information of visitors to White House, according to ABC News.
The "national security risks and privacy concerns of the hundreds of thousands of visitors annually" overruled skeptics from transparency groups who wanted a complete and open logbook.
However, the White House will release information of visitors to the Office of Management and Budget when Freedom of Information Act requests are filed.
