The White House has declined to release a log of visitors under the Trump administration. But a news outlet has come up with a log of its own, a list that includes 22 people from Pennsylvania who have interacted with President Trump since he took office.


Politico has documented in-person meetings with the president at the White House, Mar-a-Lago and other venues, event appearances, and phone calls with foreign leaders and other politicians. The news site chronicled 2,350 individual interactions with the president by 1,554 individuals.

The list included a number of prominent Pennsylvanians – 11 Republicans, three Democrats, business executives, a Medal of Honor recipient and a state Teacher of the Year, PennLive reported.


Nationally, 79 percent of the visitors were men and 21 percent women. There were 296 Republicans and 96 Democrats, 337 executives, 61 foreign leaders and 56 celebrities. Twenty percent of the visitors were minorities, according to Politico.

Lou Barletta, Mike Kelly, Bill Shuster, Charlie Dent, Ryan Costello, and Pat Meehan; Christian Leinbach, a Berks County commissioner; Terence Farrell, a Chester County commissioner; Rob Loughery, a Bucks County commissioner; and Carolyn Bunny Welsh, the Chester County sheriff.
