Leak of Trump's 'easy' daily schedule prompts White House fury

60 Percent Of Trump's Private Schedule Is 'Executive Time,' According To Leaked Docs

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

While the leaked schedules shows Trump in the Oval Office from 8 a.m.to 11 a.m, the president is never in the Oval Office during those hours, six sources told Axios.

Axios says a White House source leaked President Trump's private schedule from the last three months.

President Donald Trump's executive assistant has come to the US leader's defense following reports that the president dedicates the majority of his hours in the Oval Office to unstructured "executive time".

The schedules show how Trump has spent his time since the November midterm elections.

The director of Oval Office operations, Madeleine Westerhout, called the leak of the schedules "a disgraceful breach of trust".

Trump, who spent the weekend at his Florida golf club, was due to have his intelligence briefing at 11:45, followed by lunch with Vice President Mike Pence at 12:45. She said in a tweet that the schedules gave a misleadingly vague image of Trump's work life.

On a Tuesday in October of a year ago, Politico reported based on a leaked schedule that Trump had set aside nine hours for executive time and just three hours for meetings, briefings and appearances. "He's always up to something; it's just not what you would consider typical structure", the White House official reportedly said.

It adds up to nearly 300 hours of executive time, compared to just 77 hours in official, scheduled meetings over that period.

As a senior White House official revealed: "He's always calling people, talking to people".

A Washington Post analysis a year ago showed Trump was taking fewer and fewer scheduled daily intelligence briefings and preferred them orally instead of written.

'President Trump has a different leadership style than his predecessors and the results speak for themselves, ' White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told the news website in a statement.

In documents leaked to USA news website Axios, Trump's schedule shows how he has spent his time between November 6 all the way to February 1.

"Executive Time" is a loosely-defined title for the time Trump takes to watch television, engage with Twitter and make phone calls to friends and confidants.

Former chief of staff John Kelly invented Executive Time because the president hated being locked into a regular schedule and wanted more flexibility.
