Leaked Schedule Reveals Trump's Empty "Work" Days

#ExecutiveTime Takes Off on Twitter After 3 Months of Trump's Daily Schedules Leaked

Donald Trump reportedly spends up to five hours a day on 'executive time'

This is most of his day, and yet you see things happening with the military which are positive.

On Sunday, Axios published leaked details of the president's schedule from November 7, 2018, to February 1, 2019.

As Axios goes on to note, this stands in stark contrast to the tightly regimented and detailed schedules followed by Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, although they do somewhat resemble the unstructured schedule that Bill Clinton was notorious for, something which often made him late for meetings or public engagements and led to the expression among White House personnel that they were operating on "Clinton Time".

The concept of Executive Time was apparently introduced by former chief of staff John Kelly, to deal with the fact that Trump disliked being locked into a formal schedule.

"The time in the morning is a mix of residence time and Oval Office time but he always has calls with staff, Hill members, cabinet members and foreign leaders during this time", Sanders said in the statement.

MacCallum said this was the president's own take on the modern culture of working remotely. Even more interesting is the extent to which Trump's officials schedule reveals just how unstructured his time is and how little time he actually appears to spend in policy discussions or reviewing briefing material.

Mr Trump's schedule is very different to his predecessors, Axios reported. Huntsman also noted that the White House has a problem with leaks in general, plus there's no telling what Trump's really doing in his "executive time" since the term is still loosely defined.

"For example, the private schedule we obtained said Trump had a "media engagement" at 4:30pm this past Wednesday".

Additionally, schedules stated that Trump was to be in the Oval Office from 8 a.m.to 11 a.m., but according to six White House sources, he instead spent the time in his residence watching television, reading the news and reacting to it by calling administration officials, aides, Congress members, informal advisers and his friends.

Madeleine Westerhout‏ who is the director of Oval Office operations tweeted, "What a disgraceful breach of trust to leak schedules". 'What these don't show are the hundreds of calls and meetings @realDonaldTrump takes everyday.

"This President is working harder for the American people than anyone in recent history", Westerhout continued on Twitter.

Over the weekend, Axios' Alexi McCammond revealed that she and her colleague Jonathan Swan had been in contact with a White House insider for three months who revealed the president's private schedules to them.
