Trump’s Daily Schedule Tells You Everything You Need To Know About President ‘Hard Work’


In yet another exclusive for Axios, reporter Jonathan Swan has detailed the typical contents of Donald Trump’s daily work schedule, and it looks a lot like what you might imagine: A whole bunch of loafing around, watching television, and knocking off early.

Couple that with the amount of golf Trump has found time to play so far in less than a year in his presidency, and it’s hard to imagine how he has time to come up with the 2,000 documented lies the Washington Post has been keeping track of in the same period.

After laying out some terms and definitions for his readers, like “Executive Time” (TV watching and Twitter), “Policy Time” (an hour of being told what he supports now), and, um, “Executive Time” (more TV?), Swan gives a little insight into a typical day:

  • First work of the day, a meeting at 11 AM, one hour
  • Executive Time, one hour
  • Lunch, one hour
  • Executive Time, one hour and fifteen minutes
  • NatSec meeting, 45 minutes
  • Executive Time, 15 minutes
  • Last meeting of the day at 3:45, half an hour

That’s actually the upcoming schedule for Tuesday, but according to the documents Axios reviewed for this report, it’s fairly typical for any given day for Donald Trump. If the president is traveling, his days can last slightly longer, but some days – like what’s on his schedule for Thursday – are embarrassingly short: One hour of “Policy Time” in the morning, and Executive Time for the rest of the day.

This type of schedule is a result of Trump actually demanding more Executive Time than he used to take, which is normally spent not even in the Oval Office, but in the residence, watching cable news on one of the three big-screen televisions in his room or tweeting.

After Swan issued his report for Axios, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (kind of) responded:

“The President is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever seen and puts in long hours and long days nearly every day of the week all year long. It has been noted by reporters many times that they wish he would slow down because they sometimes have trouble keeping up with him.”

Yes, Sarah — the young, fit reporters in the White House press corps really wish that the portly 71-year-old who needs a golf cart to traverse his own course greens would “slow down.”
