WASHINGTON - For the second time in two weeks, President Trump's private schedule has been leaked to a news site despite a White House effort to track down the 'mole'.

The schedule from this past week shows the president's schedule was half comprised of 'executive time' - the unstructured bloc of time during which Trump is either watching television, making phone calls, or tweeting.

Monday's schedule indicated that Trump's day began at 8am with three hours of executive time, according to Axios.

After a 30-minute meeting with the acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, Trump had 15 additional minutes of executive time.

On Tuesday, the day Trump delivered his State of the Union address, the president had at least seven hours of executive time.

Trump had at least six hours of executive time on Wednesday and nearly four hours of executive time on Thursday.

Trump, on a tweet-filled Sunday spent in the White House with nothing on his public schedule, defended his excessive amount of 'executive time' as periods when he is 'generally working, not relaxing.'

He noted in a series of tweets that because the 'country was a mess' when he became president, 'I had no choice but to work very long hours!'

Trump spent Sunday tweeting on the need for a wall on the Southern border, accusing Democrats of wanting a second government shutdown to change the subject and slamming his rivals for the situation with their top officials in the state of Virginia.(FA)
