US President Donald Trump has denied charges of slackness and lack of office, saying he works more than all his predecessors. The White House has argued that his own style of leadership creates a "more creative atmosphere" for action.
Axios had leaked Trump's daily schedule for three months and noted that he had devoted a lot of time to "working with the documents," without revealing what that meant.
"I was able to get my own schedule, which was very easy, but I had to report it in a positive, not negative, way," Trump said on his Twitter account. , I usually do not rest. " "I work for more hours than almost all former presidents."
The president of America: "When I became president, our country was in anarchy, our armed forces were weakened by endless wars, there was a possible war with North Korea, veterans' affairs, high taxes, many regulatory issues, , Health care, etc. There was no choice but to work for long hours! ".
But according to Axios, the situation is the opposite. Up to 60% of Trump's schedule is devoted to "handling with documents" in the Oval Office, in particular, from 8 am to 11 am every day of the week.
In fact, Trump never appears in the Oval Office before 11 am. He gets up from bed around 6 am or even before, watches television every morning, reads newspapers and speaks by telephone with assistants, members of Congress and friends .
According to Trump's charter schedule, Trump will begin his first work at 11 am or 11.30 am, listening to an intelligence briefing or a half-hour meeting with the chief of staff of the White House. Sometimes only one hour is allocated per day for meetings, and the remaining seven are "working with documents."
The White House distributes the Trump agenda to journalists every day, which includes press interviews, closed briefings and interviews with journalists. However, this table is neither comprehensive nor closed. The president of the United States may unexpectedly announce a new political initiative that will hold his close advisers close or start talking to journalists, often turning into a spontaneous press conference.
White House Chief of Staff Mike Malfany said Sunday that the White House wanted to find the leaked author on Trump's schedule. Historians who study the work of former presidents consider Trump's spontaneous method of action unprecedented. The White House responded to publications that the current US president has his own style of leadership, and that this creates a "more creative atmosphere" for action.
