More Trump Schedules Leaked—Fifty Percent of Plans Taken Up by ‘Executive Time’

More of Donald Trump’s schedules have been leaked, showing the president spent around 50 percent of last week on “executive time.” Axios, which obtained three months of Trump’s private schedules last week in a leak that infuriated Trump and White House officials, has published four more of the president’s private schedules from last week. Trump is believed to use his “executive time” watching television, tweeting, calling friends, and reading newspapers. He defended his use of time Sunday, saying in a tweet: “When the term Executive Time is used, I am generally working, not relaxing... In fact, I probably work more hours than almost any past President.” The newly leaked schedules show that Trump typically starts his day with three hours of “executive time” between 8-11 a.m. and doesn’t tend to have any professional engagement lasting more than an hour. The new leak comes despite the White House’s launch of an internal hunt to find the source.
