According to the new documents, Trump spent half of his time Monday through Thursday of last week in “executive time.” Many news outlets have previously reported that Trump watches a lot of cable news during those stretches.
As Axios points out, there is a more detailed version of Trump’s schedule only distributed to senior staff which would likely include a few more events.
Trump tried to soften the embarrassment of the schedules Sunday, before the newest Axios report published, on Twitter.
The media was able to get my work schedule, something very easy to do, but it should have been reported as a positive, not negative. When the term Executive Time is used, I am generally working, not relaxing. In fact, I probably work more hours than almost any past President…..

Per Politico, White House officials (signed off on by Trump) are trying to sniff out Axios’ source by using their IT employees.
