Trump reportedly spends 60 percent of schedule in unstructured "executive time"

Trump has spent about 60 percent of his time over the last 3 months in ‘Executive Time’ Leaked White House schedules

After it was revealed that President Donald Trump apparently dedicated about 60 percent of his work schedule over the last three months to what the White House refers to as "executive time", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought to rebrand the commander-in-chief's unstructured daily schedule and ambiguous activities during his free time in the White House.

Still, what the schedules show is that since November 7 - the day after the Republicans lost decisively in the midterm elections - the president's days nearly exclusively begin and end with hours of "executive time". Instead, Axios reports he mostly spends those morning sessions in the residence where he is known to watch cable news and read newspapers.

"While he spends much of his average day in scheduled meetings, events, and calls, there is time to allow for a more creative environment that has helped make him the most productive President in modern history", Sanders said.

Axios reports that on January 18, the President had seven hours of Executive Time.

Earlier last month Ms Sanders also wrote to Axios regarding allegations that Mr Trump was starting his day much later than in his earlier days of presidency.

Termed "Executive Time" by his former chief of staff John Kelley, the #ExecutiveTime hashtag was given new life on Sunday.

Seal Poop Sample Contained a Surprise
Although it's remarkable the USB stick survived the ordeal, it's nevertheless a bad sign for the seals and their environment. As Hupman tells NIWA: "The more we can find out about these creatures, the more we can ensure they are looked after".

"What a disgraceful breach of trust to leak schedules". Axios notes that the president often holds impromptu meetings or calls heads of state during "executive time" periods, sometimes to prevent leaks.

An unnamed White House source provided Axios with the private schedules, which under normal circumstances are available to West Wing staff but not the public or reporters. This is most of his day, and yet you see things happening with the military which are positive.

Trump's schedule begins with hours of "Executive Time" and lists the location as the 'Oval Office, ' but the president is rarely in the Oval Office during that time, six sources with direct knowledge of the schedule have said.

Joy Behar argued that the leak happened because Trump's staff is "scared" of his instability, but Abby Huntsman came to Hostin's defense by saying those staffers should just quit if they disagree with the president this strongly.

The private schedules aren't complete, either, though, Axios says: Trump has impromptu meetings, and there's a third daily schedule, "kept within a very small, tight circle", with an extra meeting or two not listed on the private calendar.

The White House said this is a benefit and an example of Trump's unorthodox style.
