Trump Could Be Our Laziest President Ever, According to Leaked Schedules

60 Percent Of Trump's Private Schedule Is 'Executive Time,' According To Leaked Docs

60 Percent Of Trump's Private Schedule Is 'Executive Time,' According To Leaked Docs

On private daily schedules covering almost every weekday of the past three months, the majority of President Donald Trump's working hours are described as unstructured "executive time", Axios reported Sunday.

Trump is an early riser and usually spends the first five hours of the day in 'executive time'.

The schedules appear to identify 77 hours of official meetings during that stretch, and 38 hours of events.

"The president sometimes has meetings during Executive Time that he doesn't want most West Wing staff to know about for fear of leaks", the outlet's Alexi McCammond and Jonathan Swan wrote.

The president's first meeting of the day is usually around 11 or 11:30 a.m.

I want to give back to the community, help the kids, get them uniforms, books, book bags, everything they need ... just do better. He apparently entered the US legally in 2005, but his visa expired and he reportedly is here illegally, according to TMZ .

Despite waking up before 6am, Trump's first official meetings - often intelligence briefings - aren't held until 11am, when he makes his way from the private White House residence to the Oval Office.

Read the schedules leaked to Axios here, and the website's report breaking down the schedules here.

In a statement to Axios, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "President Trump has a different leadership style than his predecessors and the results speak for themselves". Since Nov. 7 of a year ago, based on 51 private schedules the website obtained from its source, Trump spent 297 hours in executive time versus 77 hours in meetings for "policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings", in Axios' words. The president has regularly leaned on the designation for more than a year, according to schedules from early 2018 that were also obtained by Axios.

"He's always calling people, talking to people", one senior White House official told Axios.

These meetings are generally noted in a more detailed schedule only shared with a few people. Trump's schedule shows he has spent a solid majority of his time, 60 percent, engaged in unstructured, unbothered and very private "Executive Time". But Trump, who often wakes before 6 a.m., is never in the Oval during those hours, according to six sources with direct knowledge.
