White House insider leaks Trump’s schedule showing 60 percent of his time spent luxuriating in ‘executive time’

Published

on

Sunday afternoon, Axios published three month’s worth of Donald Trump’s daily schedules that show the president spends 60 percent of his day indulging in what is called “executive time.”

The leaked documents, turned over by an anonymous White House insider, show Trump doing little work, bringing into question what exactly he does for the better part of the day.

According to Axios: “Trump, an early riser, usually spends the first 5 hours of the day in Executive Time. Each day’s schedule places Trump in ‘Location: Oval Office’ from 8 to 11 a.m.”

However, “Trump, who often wakes before 6 a.m., is never in the Oval during those hours, according to six sources with direct knowledge,” Axios reports.

“Instead, he spends his mornings in the residence, watching TV, reading the papers, and responding to what he sees and reads by phoning aides, members of Congress, friends, administration officials and informal advisers,” the report continues.

Axios has posted the documents — with safeguards in place to protect their source — here.
