President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that “no president ever worked harder” than he has, after his schedule showing long periods of “executive time” was leaked to the public last week.
“No president ever worked harder than me (cleaning up the mess I inherited)!” Trump tweeted early Monday morning.
A White House source gave Axios Trump’s private schedule for the past three months, and show that about 60 percent of his time is spent in unstructured “Executive Time,” with only a fraction of that time devoted to meetings and events.
He tweeted last weekend: “The media was able to get my work schedule, something very easy to do, but it should have been reported as a positive, not negative. When the term Executive Time is used, I am generally working, not relaxing. In fact, I probably work more hours than almost any past president…..”
“….The fact is, when I took over as President, our Country was a mess,” Trump continued. “Depleted Military, Endless Wars, a potential War with North Korea, V.A., High Taxes & too many Regulations, Border, Immigration & HealthCare problems, & much more. I had no choice but to work very long hours!”
