President Donald Trump has been in office for one month as of noon Monday, and a new analysis provides insight as to how he spent those 744 hours.
The Washington Post reports that Trump spent 72.3 percent of his first month as president in and around the Washington, D.C. area. He was in Florida at and around his Mar-a-Lago resort for 24.3 percent of the time, while his remaining 3.4 percent was spent either midair on Air Force One and Marine One and in what the Post calls "other places."
Here's the Post's full breakdown of Trump's life as president:
- 4 hours: News conferences.
- 6 hours: Intelligence briefings.
- 6 hours: Signing bills and executive orders.
- 14 hours: Listening sessions.
- 21 hours: Foreign relations.
- 221 hours: Other work time, spent in both Washington, Florida, and other locations across the country.
- 399 hours: Non-work time.
Another estimated statistic that has been a topic of discussion involves the time Trump has spent posting on Twitter. The Post used a basic formula and came up with a figure of 8:20 spent per tweet. The Post claims there were 128 tweets posted from an Android device, which are believed to be written by Trump. That amounts to 18 hours.
Trump has spent the last three weekends at Mar-a-Lago and has played golf six times, including five rounds that were 18 holes. Those trips, according to CBS News, have cost taxpayers an estimated $10 million.
Trump used to criticize former President Barack Obama about extensive travel schedule and for the number of times he played golf while in office.
