Dem Lawmaker Tired Of Trump Wasting Taxpayer Money, Urges Congress To Pass MAR-A-LAGO Bill

On Friday the Trump administration announced that they will not be releasing their visitor logs. That announcement brought forth a lot of criticism of the administration.

One of those critics is Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) who is urging Congress to pass legislation forcing the Trump administration to release White House visitor logs.

“If President Trump won’t release this critical information on his own, then Congress must compel him to do so,” Udall said on Friday.

He went on to add that Congress “must act immediately to pass” the Make Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act(MAR-A-LAGO Act).

Udall went on to state how the administration’s decision raised a lot of questions.

“This stunning decision from the Trump White House raises an obvious question: what is President Trump trying to hide? Once again, this administration is stonewalling information that Congress and the American people have a right to see,” the Democratic senator said.

The MAR-A-LAGO Act was introduced last month, which would require to make visitor logs from the White House “or any other location where President Trump regularly conducts official business” available to the public.

Unfortunately the bill has yet to be signed by any Republicans in Congress.

Udall argued that the decision is the latest example that Trump is catering to special interests.

“By refusing to release the White House visitor logs, President Trump is confirming widespread concerns that the special interests are getting special treatment in this administration,” he said.
