President Trump wants to scale back his schedule so he can spend more time doing these super important things

Considering the schedules of the past presidents of the United States, Trump's official itinerary for the day is significantly shorter.

President Donald Trump reportedly starts his official work later in the day to spend more time in the mornings watching television and tweeting, according to Axios report on Sunday.

The report stated that Trump now starts his day until after 11 a.m. and is gradually holding fewer meetings during his work hours. Axios released the report after viewing copies of Trump's private schedule, according to reports.

 



The news and information outlet stated that the first part of Trump's day is known as "Executive Time." It reportedly takes place in the Oval Office according to the schedule, however, officials told Axios that Trump spends this section of the day in the White House residence where he watches TV and tweets on the micro-blogging site.

The schedule states that Trump arrives in the Oval Office for his intelligence briefing at 11 a.m., which is his first meeting of the day. He reportedly returns to his residence by 6 p.m.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, negated the report by saying that the president's "time in the morning is a mix of residence time and Oval Office time but he always has calls with staff, Hill members, cabinet members and foreign leaders during this time," according to The Hill.

 



"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," Huckabee Sanders said in a statement to Axios.

Considering the schedules of the past presidents of the United States, Trump's official itinerary for the day is significantly shorter.

Reports state that former President George W. Bush used to arrive at the Oval Office by 6:45 a.m., while former President Barack Obama would arrive at the Oval Office between 9 and 10 a.m. after his morning workout. 

 



Trump also reportedly spends nearly eight hours per day watching television, according to the New York Times. Trump, however, has disputed this claim.

"But I don’t get to watch much television. Primarily because of documents. I’m reading documents. A lot," Trump said while talking to reporters last year. "I actually read much more — I read you people, much more than I watch television."

 



Trump's lifestyle in the White House has become a popular topic of discussion ever since excerpts from journalist Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fure: Inside Trump's White House were released.

The book claimed that Trump used to dine with former Chief White House strategist Steve Bannon every evening, and would eat cheeseburgers in bed when he didn't dine with the former aide.
