President Trump on Sunday asserted that he works “more hours than roughly any past president.”
“The media was means to get my work schedule, something really easy to do, though it should have been reported as a positive, not negative,” Trump tweeted. “When a tenure Executive Time is used, we am generally working, not relaxing. In fact, we substantially work some-more hours than roughly any past President.”
He continued: “The fact is, when we took over as President, a Country was a mess. Depleted Military, Endless Wars, a intensity War with North Korea, V.A., High Taxes too many Regulations, Border, Immigration HealthCare problems, most more. we had no choice though to work really prolonged hours!”
The tweets come days after Axios published a some-more than fifty presidential daily schedules it had performed from an unnamed White House source.
The schedules suggested that, in a days given a 2018 midterm elections, “Trump has spent around 60% of his scheduled time…in unstructured ‘Executive Time.’”
Axios also noted those hours are typically taken in a morning and spent “in a residence, examination TV, reading a papers, and responding to what he sees and reads by phoning aides, members of Congress, friends, administration officials and spontaneous advisers.”
