The Trump-era policy was slammed as a deterioration of openness from the previous administration. Under President Barack Obama, the White House frequently archived and released visitor logs for its core workplaces.

The White House will restart the release of its visitor logs once President-elect Joe Biden takes workplace, Biden shift spokesperson Jen Psaki revealed Friday.
The move is a shift from President Donald Trumps White House, which kept visitor logs to core workplaces of the White House, consisting of the West Wing, personal. The Trump administration dealt with legal difficulties to its position and settled a suit in 2018 to allow regular monthly publication of visitor logs for some White House offices, consisting of the Office of Management and Budget and the drug czars office.
