The latest set of leaks, released to Axios, however, show the private schedule of President Trump for just about every day since the midterm elections. Since Nov. 7 of a year ago, based on 51 private schedules the website obtained from its source, Trump spent 297 hours in executive time versus 77 hours in meetings for "policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings", in Axios' words.
Trump usually spends the first 5 hours of each day watching TV, reading newspapers, and reacting to what he sees and reads in the residence, instead of receiving official government information and working with staff in the Oval Office. According to these reports, more than 60% of the President's scheduled time, including not only the mornings when he is most famously known for tweeting randomly but also mid-afternoons and on other occasions throughout the day, are filled with this so-called "Executive Time". "What these don't show are the hundreds of calls and meetings Donald Trump takes every day". Trump, ever-paranoid, conducts some meetings during Executive Time that he doesn't want West Wing staffers to know about in case of leaks.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Axios in a response to the report that "President Trump has a different leadership style than his predecessors and the results speak for themselves".
The private schedules do not list all of Mr Trump's meetings, as Axios also reported that many of his meetings are spur of the moment, or concealed as "executive time" due to fear of leaks. The news about the president's schedule revolving around watching TV and tweeting has been previously revealed - and it does not come as a surprise to the political observers and social media users who have noticed how the president's tweets often reflect the programming on Fox News.
His first meeting, generally around 11am or 11.30am, is often an intelligence briefing or a 30-minute meeting with acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.
Patriots' Harmon says he won't visit White House
Only 34 of the 52 Patriots visited President Trump in 2017 after defeating the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51. There is no set date or confirmed plans for a Patriots visit to the White House at this time.
Axios said he calls aides, Administration officials, lawmakers, friends and advisers.
She added: "It's indisputable that our country has never been stronger than it is today under the leadership of President Trump".
Trump also deviated from a practice followed by the past seven presidents by rarely reading a daily intelligence brief that presents vital information from US spy agencies, but that has been known for some time. This POTUS is working harder for the American people than anyone in recent history'.
So when Trump is in executive time, it can mean more than just sitting around doing nothing.
