A leak over the weekend showed President Donald Trump follows a much different schedule than his predecessors.
Axios published copies of Trump's daily routine on Sunday, indicating he spends much of his morning in "executive time" that generally takes place in the White House residence. During that time, according to Axios, Trump talks on the phone, posts tweets, and watches TV. He heads to the Oval Office around 11 a.m. for meetings, often his daily intelligence briefing. He generally has meetings and lunch in the middle of the day and portions of the afternoon, followed by more "executive time" that stretches into the evening.
Axios also published general details regarding the schedules of former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama when they were in office.
Clinton's day would typically begin with a 9 a.m. meeting with his chief of staff in the Oval Office. He would sometimes start with a run along the streets of the nation's capital, according to Business Insider. Clinton would generally stay in the Oval Office throughout his workday.
Bush led a strict schedule, waking up at 5:15 a.m. for coffee with his wife Laura before a 6:45 a.m. arrival in the Oval Office. His workday was scheduled in 10-minute increments, and his first meeting would typically start around 8:15 a.m.
Bush would finish work by 5:30 or 6 p.m. and would then hit the gym before eating dinner. He was generally in bed by 9 p.m.
Obama, Axios reported, also had a structured workday. He would usually be in the Oval Office at 9 a.m. and would have six meetings plus intelligence briefings. The Obama family ate dinner at 6 or 6:30 p.m., and he would sometimes stay up until 2 a.m. reading.
