New leaks show Trump is still taking a lot of ‘executive time’ — even after calendar scandal
The White House staffer who leaked President Donald Trump’s schedule revealing his extensive “executive time,” is leaking more schedules. The move comes after the White House announced ht would launch an investigation into the leak.
The schedules are somewhat different from those released of the last several months. In wake of the schedule scandal, the calendar appointments seem to be padded with additional meetings, instead of calling for a blanket “executive time.” Such time is more isolated to short spurts of time that is similar to a break the day prior to the State of the Union address.
However, after the big address, schedules continued with the hours-long “executive time” with short meetings peppered in.
The White House has claimed that Trump is doing meetings and calls during such time. Observers, however, see the president tweeting about what is appearing on cable news during those times.
