We rearrange President Trump's workday schedule to make him more productive

The schedules show Trump spends around 60 per cent of each day in "executive time", a concept introduced by former chief of staff John Kelly because the president detests being locked into a regular schedule.

But Axios cautioned, not all the president's meetings are reflected on his schedule because many of his them are spur of the moment, according to senior White House officials.

The leaked schedules, which cover nearly every working day since the midterms on November 6, show Mr Trump spends about 60 per cent of his day in "executive time", according to Axios.

Instead, he in the residence, watching TV, reading the newspapers, tweeting, and phoning aides, members of Congress, friends, administration officials and informal advisers, the news website reported. The outlet said this time is spent tweeting, watching TV, and making phone calls.

But the schedule doesn't tell the full story, Axios noted.

According to Axios, those same schedules revealed that the President "has had about 77 hours scheduled for meetings that include policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings".

To be fair, Presidential schedules don't always tell us everything that goes on during the Chief Executive's day, of course, but these materials do appear to reveal something that has been long suspected about this President. The outlet reported that Trump spent almost 300 hours from November 7, 2018 to Feb 1, 2019 in the vague "executive time".

Facebook Messenger now lets you unsend messages - if you’re quick
Facebook Messenger is one of the most used messaging platforms out there, and it's finally adding the ability to unsend a message. For up to 10 minutes after a message is sent, users will soon have the option to delete that message from the conversation.

'What a disgraceful breach of trust to leak schedules, ' the 28-year-old tweeted. In a statement to Axios, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "President Trump has a different leadership style than his predecessors and the results speak for themselves".

When a White House staffer leaked the details of President Donald Trump's schedule to Axios, it caused a stir about how he actually spends his days. You can read the schedules for yourself, but here's a visualization - Executive Time is orange.

"President Trump has ignited a booming economy with lower taxes and higher wages, established the United States of America as the #1 producer of oil and gas in the world, remade our judiciary, rebuilt our military, and renegotiated better trade deals", Sanders stated.

"The distortions of the hate Trump movement are never more obvious than in the reaction to the President's leaked schedule", Trump ally Newt Gingrich said.

According to reports, Trump's first meeting of the day typically doesn't start until 11am with Mr Whipple adding that there's "no historical parallel" for how Trump spends his day.

Joy Behar argued that the leak happened because Trump's staff is "scared" of his instability, but Abby Huntsman came to Hostin's defense by saying those staffers should just quit if they disagree with the president this strongly.
