President Donald Trump's shrinking daily schedule just leaked. While the official presidential schedule designates the start of each day with "Executive Time" from 8-11 am, Axios is reporting that the 71-year-old president instead spends his mornings watching TV and tweeting from the White House residence.
On a typical day, Trump doesn't find his way to the Oval Office until 11:00 or later, which is when he receives his daily intelligence briefing. Trump then stays at work until 6:00 before retiring back to the residence, where he watches more TV, tweets, makes phone calls, and who-knows-what else. It's his executive style leftover from his days running the Trump Organization.
The White House isn't fond of reports that Trump watches as much as 8 hours of TV a day, as New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman expressed on Twitter: "When we approached WH people estimating he spent as little as four and sometimes twice that many hours in front of a TV for our Dec piece, Trump erupted and blasted “fake reporters” while on Asia trip."
