Trump’s schedule is full of ‘executive time’ that might be more productive than it sounds

A White House staffer leaked President Donald Trump’s private schedules to Axios on Sunday, and the documents revealed some eye-opening details about the president’s day.

For one, Trump spends the bulk of his workdays in “executive time” — unstructured blocks of time that make up 60% of his working hours. According to Axios, Trump spends much of that time in his White House residence watching cable news, tweeting, and making phone calls.

Trump’s first meeting of the day, usually an intelligence briefing, takes place at about 11 a.m., the documents said. Meetings in general make up about 15% of Trump’s schedule.
