Trump Wastes 60% of Working Hours With “Executive Time”


The Guardian: “What does Donald Trump do with his time? The mystery was at least partially solved on Sunday, with an extensive leak of his private schedule.

According to the website Axios, since 7 November, the day after the midterm elections, the president has spent almost 300 hours in relatively unstructured “executive time” and only 77 hours in scheduled meetings covering policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings.

“The White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said in a statement to Axios: ‘President Trump has a different leadership style than his predecessors and the results speak for themselves.'”

“Executive time, the publication asserted then, ‘almost always means TV and Twitter time alone in the residence’.”
