Joe Biden has appeared to be breaking his promise of restoring transparency and trust in the government. Since taking office, Biden has taken 17 trips to his residences in Delaware, but he’s refused to disclose who has visited him.
Critics like Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said since Biden is technically doing work in Delaware, the same transparency that applies to White House visitor logs should apply to records of his visits to his residences. However, the White House said he will not disclose that information despite concerns over potential conflicts of interest.
“No, I can confirm we are not going to be providing information about the comings and goings of the president’s grandchildren or people visiting him in Delaware,” said Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
Reports said Biden is planning on making two more presidential visits to Delaware next week, however, records of who may visit him will not be released.
