Does Trump Ever Work? Apparently Not.
February 4, 2019
Trump’s private schedules over the past three months revealed how little the president actually works. In fact, Trump spent around 60% percent of his time in “executive time,” watching TV and tweeting. Wouldn’t that be nice? Good thing there isn’t anything major the president needs to be dealing with…
Trump usually spends the first five hours of each day and around 60% of his time overall in “executive time.”
Axios: “The schedules, which cover nearly every working day since the midterms, show that Trump has spent around 60% of his scheduled time over the past 3 months in unstructured ‘Executive Time.’”
Axios: “Trump, an early riser, usually spends the first 5 hours of the day in Executive Time. Each day’s schedule places Trump in ‘Location: Oval Office’ from 8 to 11 a.m. But Trump, who often wakes before 6 a.m., is never in the Oval during those hours, according to six sources with direct knowledge.”
Trump also spent 77 hours in meetings over the past three months, which is less time than most Americans work in two weeks.
Meanwhile, as Trump claims there is a supposed “national emergency,” he spent the weekend at his ritzy Florida golf course.
