Leak of Trump’s daily schedule prompts White House fury

Leak of Trump’s daily schedule prompts White House fury

Chris Whipple, a presidential historian, told Axios there is "almost no [historical] parallel" for how the president's days are structured.

The 51 days of schedules, covering much of November up to February 1 and published by the political news website Axios on Sunday, do not capture absolutely everything the president does in a given day.

White House officials are expressing anger after an insider leaked months of President Donald Trump's private schedules.

"Executive time" is the term administration staff use to describe when the president is in the residence watching television, talking on the phone and tweeting. "What struck me, when I read it", she said, "was that it sounds a lot like work".

She added that Mr Trump "always has calls" with staff, Cabinet members and foreign leaders during this time.

The Blues also come up against City in the Carabao Cup final near the end of the month and they have to play Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round too.

Gingrich, who was speaker from 1995 to 1999, also justified Trump's executive time by tweeting that former British Prime Minister Winston "Churchill slept late, worked late, took a nap every afternoon (getting into his pajamas)". Although the private schedules list him as being in the Oval Office from 8 to 11 a.m. ET each day, the president actually spends those hours in his residence "watching TV, reading newspapers and responding to what he sees and reads by phoning aides, members of Congress, friends, administration officials and informal advisers", the news site reported, citing six sources with direct knowledge of the matter. On January 18, for instance, Trump had one hour of scheduled meetings with Mulvaney and treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin and seven hours of executive time. The news portal has access to copies of Trump's personal schedules. In the three month period since the midterm elections, Trump has spent 297 hours and 15 minutes of a total 502 hours in his overall schedule from that period.

Kurtz said: "Who cares how he runs his schedule, as long as he gets things done?"

"What a disgraceful breach of trust to leak schedules", Director of Oval Office Operations Madeleine Westerhout wrote on Twitter Sunday. "What these don't show are the hundreds of calls and meetings @realDonaldTrump takes everyday", Westerhout tweeted.

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, told reporters at the White House on Monday that "whoever leaked it doesn't know what he's doing for a net block of time". What is clear, according to news reports and those close to the president, is that he prefers succinct presentations with more visual elements than those that were prepared for his predecessors.
