White house to keep visitor logs secret

President Donald Trump will not release logs of those who visit the White House, reversing his predecessor's voluntary disclosure policy. The White House cited "grave national security risks and privacy concerns" as the reason for its decision.

Former President Barack Obama voluntarily disclosed more than 6 million records during his presidency. Critics say the logs allow for monitoring of individuals or groups who may be trying to influence policy.
