Demand transparency in Trump's White House

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

We The People deserve to know who is coming and going in the White House -- President Donald Trump’s refusal to make the White House visitor logs public casts yet another shadow over his historically anti-transparency administration.

If Donald Trump won’t come clean on his own, he must be forced. Congress must pass the MAR-A-LAGO Act to make White House visitor logs public, as well as anywhere else the President conducts business.
There are currently 2,128 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

When President Trump conducts the public’s business from the White House, the public has a right to know who he’s conducting it with. That’s why his decision to keep the White House visitor logs secret is an attack on the principle of open government our democracy relies on.

Trump’s decision reverses President Obama’s policy of publishing visitor logs, which was hailed by open government advocates as a step forward for transparency, and provided a valuable resource to journalists and anyone seeking to hold the President accountable.

But the current President’s administration is shrouded in controversy -- from his unaddressed conflicts of interests to his unprecedented refusal to publish his tax returns, to him and his team’s undisclosed ties with the Russian government. His repeated attempts to shield himself from public scrutiny and oversight should alarm anyone who cares about transparency.

President Trump works for us -- the American people. And if he won’t be straightforward with us, it’s up to our representatives in Congress to make him come clean.

That’s why our lawmakers must immediately pass the MAR-A-LAGO Act, which would make public visitor logs from the White House and anywhere else the President regularly conducts business, like the Florida estate that lends its name to the bill.

It’s our right and duty as citizens to hold the President to the highest standards of ethics and transparency. Congress must pass the MAR-A-LAGO Act so we can hold Donald Trump accountable.
