On a Tuesday in October of previous year, Politico reported based on a leaked schedule that Trump had set aside nine hours for executive time and just three hours for meetings, briefings and appearances. You just kiss some babies and call it a day.

He reportedly spends his mornings "in the residence, watching TV, reading the papers, and responding to what he sees and reads by phoning aides, members of Congress, friends, administration officials and informal advisers". On January 18, for instance, Trump had one hour of scheduled meetings with Mulvaney and treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin and seven hours of executive time.

After the release of these schedules, there has been apparent chaos in the White House. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. The news site said the 51 private schedules it obtained show that since November 7, one day after the midterm elections, Trump spent about 297 hours in executive time and about 77 hours in meetings for things like policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings.

A White House official took to Twitter to express her anger over the leaked documents, implying the legitimacy of the leaked documents.

According to Axios, Trump rarely spends his morning hours in the Oval Office.

Clinton's day would typically begin with a 9 a.m. meeting with his chief of staff in the Oval Office.

He would finish his workday about 5.30 or 6pm.

Mr Obama also had unscheduled time but these were rare and usually happened before an important event such as a foreign trip or State of the Union address.

Alexi McCammond and Jonathan Swan commented: "The president sometimes has meetings during Executive Time that he doesn't want most West Wing staff to know about for fear of leaks..." However, he eventually settled into a routine starting with meetings about 9am and continuing well into the evening.

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".
