The White House's statement said it will be breaking with the practice, started by Obama, of making the names of those who visit the White House available to the public.

Several groups have condemned the decision, calling it a step backward for White House transparency. 

Trump's 2012 tweet read: "Why is Barack Obama spending millions to try and hide his records? He is the least transparent President--ever--and he ran on transparency."

It was not immediately apparent what Trump’s tweet was referring to, but it came the same day as a Daily Caller report headlined “Watchdog group sues for transparency on Michelle Obama vacation expenses.”

The old tweet drew new reactions on Twitter, with many sharing or directly replying with references to the decision not to release White House visitor logs.
