Trump tweets he’s hardest-working president as schedule leaks again



President Donald Trump would like to let you know that his extensive use of "executive time" is actually very productive in the continuing loss of his private program.

During the weekends and Monday, Trump fired tweets in response to reports that he spends most of his time as president in so-called "executive time hours", when there is nothing specific to do for him. Alexi McCammond and Jonathan Swan of Axios published three months of Trump's private program on February 3 after someone disclosed information to McCammond. The program showed that Trump spent about 60% of the time programmed in "executive time".

The White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, said on Sunday that he expected to find his escape this week. Hours later, Axios sent more leaked programs for four days just last week. They show that 50% of the president's time was in executive time.

While Mulvaney tries to eradicate the escape, Trump is saying it's not a big deal.

In a tweet on Sunday, Trump said that getting his media work program is "very easy to do", but the issue should have been brought back in a positive light.

"When using the term Executive Time, I generally work, I do not relax," wrote Trump. "Actually, I probably work more hours than any other past president." He declared that the country was "a mess" when he arrived at the White House.

He reiterated the sentiment on Monday morning with a tweet saying that no president has ever worked more

In an interview with Fox News Sunday Mulvaney has minimized the meaning of the schedules promising also to understand how they came out.

"Things in the memos are not confidential, about 400 people receive it.There are many more private programs I see, for example, as head of staff," Chris Wallace told host. "So it's not the content, it's the fact that someone inside the White House has spent three months collecting this information, which is really hard to do."

Mulvaney suggested that the person leaked from the hours he was probably a "career staff" who had not been hired by the Trump administration and complains that it might be difficult to fire that person if and when he is discovered. He said he "hoped to have a resolution" on the topic this week. Since Axios has posted new hours later, it does not look promising – or at least the person doing it is not worried about being caught.

The problem is not just what the schedules say, but they are being leaked in the first place

While, obviously, it is not ideal for the public to see information about the president suggesting that it might not do much (or at least something specific) a lot of time, the biggest problem here could be that schedules are coming out at all. It is a fairly subversive act of subversion for someone close to the president's orbit to send a reporter of months of private information – and to continue doing so even after the White House has decided to uncover them.

And Trump's White House is notoriously a loser. Collaborators and talkers in the industry seem to have long talked to authors like Michael Wolff and Bob Woodward to provide content for their fantastic tell-alls and many journalists seem to continually receive inside information. The White House has repeatedly promised to suppress losses, but so far the efforts have been largely unsuccessful.

Despite Trump's tweets otherwise, suggestions that are not particularly productive as president clearly annoy him. He told reporters on Air Force One in December 2017 that he does not watch television and that he reports the opposite from "false journalists, false sources". He continued, "I can not watch much television, primary because of documents, I'm reading a lot of documents."
