Trump pushes back against criticism of his schedule
President Donald Trump is pushing back against criticisms that a leak of his private schedule suggests he is not working hard.
Trump tweeted that it “should have been reported as a positive, not a negative.”
He also suggested that when the term “executive time” appears on his schedule, it means he is “generally working, not relaxing.”
Axios obtained three months of the president’s private schedules. They revealed that he spent 60 percent of his time in executive time, a term coined by former chief of staff John Kelly for unstructured time in Trump’s day.
