Leak of President Trump's schedules a 'disgraceful breach of trust': White House

It's more or less become common knowledge that Donald Trump spends a great deal of his day watching television and tweeting, what has since been come to be known as the president's "Executive Time". 'He's always up to something; it's just not what you would consider typical structure'.

President Donald Trump reportedly often spends up to five hours a day in unstructured 'executive time, ' according to his private schedule.

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.

On Sunday, when the Axios story broke, Trump was finishing up a round of golf with Mulvaney at his golf club in Jupiter, Florida.

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.

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

Axios obtained the president's day-to-day schedules from an unidentified White House source.

Appearing alongside MacCallum, Fox's "Media Buzz" presenter Howie Kurtz weighed in, calling the schedule "a heat-seeking missile of a leak ... exclusively created to embarrass Donald Trump".

The Plane Carrying Missing Emiliano Sala Has Been Found
He said:"I was alright until the final whistle went and I went on the pitch". "And I thought we deserved it". Wreckage from the plane that carried Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala and a pilot has been found.

Room in the White House residence where he skimmed the headlines of The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Washington Times as "Fox & Friends" played in the background.

"What a disgraceful breach of trust to leak schedules", Madeleine Westerhout, director of Oval Office Operations, wrote on Twitter. Trump, ever-paranoid, conducts some meetings during Executive Time that he doesn't want West Wing staffers to know about in case of leaks.

Sanders disputes that assessment, contending Trump's schedule allows "for a more creative environment that has helped make him the most productive president in modern history".

Sources in the White House said that the recent leak has incited a flurry of finger-pointing as the administration scrambles to plug the leak of damaging information.

As per the schedule, Trump has spent around 300 hours in executive time.

White House officials dispute the characterization Trump is not interested in such topics or has only a superficial understanding of them.

In particular George W Bush had a tightly packed schedule that was booked out months in advance.

It has also been widely reported that Trump consults with informal advisers such as Fox News host Sean Hannity.
