Axios' Lazaro Gamio did some calculations and discovered that out of the 502 hours and 55 minutes accounted for in these schedules, Trump spent 297 hours and 15 minutes in "Executive Time", while 39 hours were spent on lunch, 77 hours and 5 minutes were spent in meetings, 51 hours and 15 minutes were spent on travel and 38 hours and 20 minutes were spent at events.

As the day neared 12 p.m., the President would finish up his time in the residence and then head to the West Wing for a day of meetings, briefings and phone calls. 'He's always up to something; it's just not what you would consider typical structure'.

But the difference between Trump's largely unstructured schedules and other Presidents' action-packed agendas is dramatic.

According to Axios, the "unusually voluminous leak" from an unnamed White House source gives unprecedented visibility into how Trump spends his days.

Each day's schedule over the last three months placed Mr Trump in the Oval Office between 8:00am and 11:00am, but according to Axios, Mr Trump is nearly never in the Oval Office during those hours.

Executive Time is supposed to consist of time in the Oval Office, but Trump wakes before 6 a.m. and doesn't leave the residence for five hours.

On private daily schedules covering almost every weekday of the past three months, the majority of President Donald Trump's working hours are described as unstructured "executive time", Axios reported Sunday.

It's also worth noting that not all of Trump's meetings appear on his schedule. During these hours, particularly in the morning, Trump spends his time not in the Oval Office but his private residence quarters, watching TV, reading newspapers, and reacting to the things he sees and reads on the phone with various friends and advisors, and of course, on Twitter.

In describing the relationship between the conservative-leaning cable network and the Trump administration, Salon's Heather Digby Parton wrote, "Fox has become Trump's de facto kitchen cabinet and unofficial communications office, creating a tight feedback loop between the far right and the White House".

"President Trump has a different leadership style than his predecessors and the results speak for themselves", Sanders said in the emailed statement, according to Axios.

'President Trump has ignited a booming economy with lower taxes and higher wages, established the US as the #1 producer of oil and gas in the world, remade our judiciary, rebuilt our military, and renegotiated better trade deals. "It's indisputable that our country has never been stronger than it is today under the leadership of President Trump". This POTUS is working harder for the American people than anyone in recent history'.
