Leak of Trump's 'easy' daily schedule prompts White House fury
Feb 07, 2019, 00:44
Nearly every day of President Donald Trump's private schedule for the last three months was leaked to Axios via a White House source, revealing a schedule comparable to some college students' (no disrespect to college students, we are just jealous of your freedom). Trump, ever-paranoid, conducts some meetings during Executive Time that he doesn't want West Wing staffers to know about in case of leaks. In order to protect the identity of their source, the news outlet published re-typed versions of the schedules they received.
Executive time for Trump can be a number of different things, whether that be live-tweeting "Fox & Friends" from bed or conducting loosely structured meetings and making calls.
Surprisingly, the day after the midterm elections, Trump's schedule allowed for just one 30-minute meeting with his chief of staff before heading into seven hours of "executive time".
While the leaked schedules shows Trump in the Oval Office from 8 a.m.to 11 a.m, the president is never in the Oval Office during those hours, six sources told Axios. Instead, Axios reports he mostly spends those morning sessions in the residence where he is known to watch cable news and read newspapers.
But Axios cautioned, not all the president's meetings are reflected on his schedule because many of his them are spur of the moment, according to senior White House officials. You just kiss some babies and call it a day. People inside are genuinely scared.,' said former White House aide, Cliff Sims. While Trump spends about 60% of his work day in "executive time", that does not necessarily mean he is furiously tweeting or sitting in front of the television.
The extensive schedules leaked to Axios appear to confirm years of headlines about Trump's time in the White House: his distaste for extensive briefings and lengthy meetings and his preference for time to himself to freewheel and deal much as he did during his time as a New York City real estate and reality TV personality.
According to Axios, those same schedules revealed that the President "has had about 77 hours scheduled for meetings that include policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings".
