The private schedules aren't complete, either, though, Axios says: Trump has impromptu meetings, and there's a third daily schedule, "kept within a very small, tight circle", with an extra meeting or two not listed on the private calendar.
The View had plenty to chat about on Tuesday, thanks to the news that President Donald Trump devotes about 60 percent of his schedule these days to "executive time". Instead, he's upstairs in the residence, watching TV, reading newspapers, and calling people. Chris Whipple, author of The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency and presidential schedule-whiz, told Axios, "The most important asset in any presidency is the president's time".
On Sunday, when the Axios story broke, Trump was finishing up a round of golf with Mulvaney at his golf club in Jupiter, Florida.
To be fair, Presidential schedules don't always tell us everything that goes on during the Chief Executive's day, of course, but these materials do appear to reveal something that has been long suspected about this President. The point of Trump's more than 300 hours in unstructured time, Sanders said, is "to allow for a more creative environment that has helped make him the most productive president in modern history". People inside are genuinely scared.,' said former White House aide, Cliff Sims.
Axios first reported the existence of executive time in January of past year.

If the Knicks get a superstar or two this summer with all the cap space they opened up on Thursday, they'll be vindicated. Porzingis hasn't played in the 2018-19 season as he continues to recover from an ACL injury he suffered previous year .
Sanders also retweeted a post by Oval Office operations director Madeleine Westerhout on Sunday slamming the leak.
A LEAK of Donald Trump's schedule has revealed he enjoys a lot of unstructured private time and sources reveal he doesn't spend much time in his office.
Mr Trump spent 297 hours and 15 minutes in executive time compared to just over 77 hours of scheduled meetings over the period, as well as 51 hours in travel and 39 hours in lunch, according to the 95-page report.
Sources in the White House said that the recent leak has incited a flurry of finger-pointing as the administration scrambles to plug the leak of damaging information.
Sanders highlighted what she called "a booming economy with lower taxes and higher wages" and a "rebuilt" military as key achievements, as well as the president's many federal judge appointments and his aggressive - or ostracizing, depending on the view - positions on trade negotiations. It's indisputable that our country has never been stronger than it is today under the leadership of President Trump, ' She continued in the email statement.
