President Trump’s Daily Routine Is Exhausting

Being the President of the United States is one of the most demanding jobs there is. It’s certainly not a role that just anyone can fill and isn’t a job for the faint of heart. It requires intense focus and a tremendous amount of time and energy.

Regardless of how you feel about the 45th president, Donald J. Trump’s policies and praxis, it’s worth giving him credit where it’s due. He is certainly a man that is committed to his position. We’re going to take a little look at his work life. Just how much of his time is devoted to his presidential duties?

It revealed that 60% of the president’s schedule is spent on what is termed as blocks of executive time. In a little bit, we’ll get to the bottom of what exactly that entails.

His very specific responsibilities of meeting with world leaders, and touching face with members of his administration. Dealing with the various struggles of combating a global pandemic. These unstructured times are left to the President’s discretion to both fulfill his many obligations while balancing his leisure time.

Of course, many have speculated about how he spends his day. These times have been picked apart by those with partisan interests. Let’s take a look at how the President really spends his time and just how grueling his job really is.

President Trump Gets Very Little Sleep

Reportedly, the President wakes up very early. He opens his eyes around 5;30 every morning and starts making phone calls as early as 6 a.m.

Fortunately for his health, Mr. Trump isn’t a coffee addict. He just gets up and goes.

The Donald has expressed that one of the keys to his success has been his sleep schedule. He typically only sleeps three or four hours per night. He has an edge over those that need more sleep to feel well-rested and productive.

Perhaps he is one of the lucky 1% who needs less than the scientifically recommended 7 to 8 hours. Otherwise, he is exceptionally sleep deprived.

President Trump Typically Skips Breakfast

When you’re up and rolling so early in the morning, that leaves little time for a lavish breakfast. He rarely indulges in this morning mainstay, when he does, he has expressed that his favorite breakfast foods are eggs over-well and bacon medium.

In 2016, Trump revealed that he normally enjoys a light lunch but his favorite meal of the day is dinner.

The President’s Morning Routine Includes Watching Fox News And Tweeting

Trump is famously a fan of the Rupert Murdock owned news network, and taking his opinions and thoughts to Twitter.

In between his duties, he likes to keep up on the latest world events and politics and maintain an active presence on the social media platform.

It’s been rumored that some of the president’s chiefs of staff have made attempts to limit his time spent in these ways, but as we all know, Trump does what he wants when he wants unapologetically. This approach has brought the president critics as well as ardent fans.

Trump Receives A Daily Stack Of Newspapers And Positive Press Coverage Every Morning

Reportedly a team of 3 staffers begin compiling the newspaper articles, blog posts, and TV snippets at 6 a.m. every morning where they then send their findings to the Republican National Committee’s ‘war room’ for the President to take a gander at.

Throughout the day, their work continues and their findings are sent to the White House every half hour.

Trump Leaves His Residential Quarters around 8 And Makes His Way To The West Wing

There, he is met with daily intelligence briefings. He has historically made it a habit of breaking with tradition by dismissing what is known as the President’s Daily Brief, in favor of receiving oral briefings.

Every Day’s Schedule Varies But The President Always Has His ‘Executive Time’

These blocks of time can last as long as two hours but are sometimes as short as 45 minutes.

During this time, he isn’t engaged in the official meetings and appearances that fill the rest of his schedule.

Some have criticized the President for these unstructured time chunks as they have been known to take up large portions of his day – sometimes up to 9 hours -, but arguably, some people do their best work when ideas are free to flow and use of time is open to their own discretion.

There is no denying the fact that the President has modeled much of his time as Commander and Chief after his time as a business executive. No doubt, he feels that his approach to time-management has been successful in his previous profession and thus it is the optimal way to treat his current position.

Reportedly, Chief Of Staff, John Kelly first instituted these executive time chunks after the President had expressed that he didn’t have adequate enough time to think.

Trumps Eating Schedule Varies

Some days – but not every day – Trump has lunches with officials to discuss important policy and action.

Generally speaking, Trump uses his dinner time as the chief dining opportunity to discuss important strategic issues pertaining to national security and other presidential concerns with guests of his choosing. He typically enjoys this meal around 6:30 every evening.

Unlike the previous incumbent and first lady Barrack and Michelle Obama, Trump rarely goes out to eat in DC. He typically enjoys his meals at the white house or at his steakhouse at the Trump Hotel.

Trump was quoted as saying ” I can invite anyone for dinner, and they will come’ shortly after he took office. There is probably a lot of truth in that statement as well.

Previous dinner guests include Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report, Kid Rock, and Fox New’s Sean Hannity.

Trumps Favorite Foods

When you are the leader of the free world, you gotta make sure you get the nutrition you need to keep you going throughout your stress-filled days.

Some of Trump’s dinner favorites include well-done steaks and meatloaf. He also enjoys the occasional Diet Coke to wash it all down.

For dessert, the President is served a slice of pie with two scoops of ice cream. Humorously, his guests are served a slice with only one scoop.

Trump Loves To Play Golf In His Downtime

25 miles from the White House is his golf club Trump National.

The president enjoys hitting the green on the weekends and has reportedly visited the club over 166 times since taking office.

On long weekends and special occasions, the president and his family take frequent trips down to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida which he refers to as a ‘Southern White House”.

He typically has far fewer staff when he is at the resort although many of his aids still remain on call.

For New Years every year, Trump holds a rather luxurious party every year at Mar-a-Lago. Ticket prices to attend the event range from $650 for dues-playing members of the club to a grand for non-affiliated guests.

Rallies, Signing Ceremonies, and Press Releases

During the election season, the President’s schedule has been particularly packed. Handling the daily duties of being President while simultaneously engaging his base through rallies and events has to be quite tiresome for the president – although you’d never suspect it from his rhetoric. Trump endeavors to always maintain a persona of strength and vigor – which is obvious by his criticisms of his political opponents – notably his labeling of former vice president Joe Biden as sleepy Joe.

Additionally, the president is often called upon for signing ceremonies when bills, legislation, and executive orders are signed into law.

In recent times, dealing with the pandemic, the President has had the added responsibility of working with the various task force teams, governmental agencies, and scientific institutions to formulate plans of action and provide regular press releases to the concerned public about the state of things. Of course, dealing with this issue has been tricky seeing how polarized society has become.

Whether you agree with his approach or perspective or not, it’s clear that balancing the duties of being president while navigating a global crisis and being looked upon for answers to a divided world’s vast array of questions is certainly a trial-some task to undertake.

Not The First President To Have An Unorthodox Schedule

President Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter used to have phone calls in the middle of the night with each other. George Bush got most of his work down in the wee hours of the morning. Barack Obama was famous for being a night owl.

Unlike some of these previous office-holders however, Trump is far less bound to a fixed schedule. It’s not unlike him to hold impromptu meetings instead of having scheduled policy discussions on the books for weeks in advance.

The President prefers to work in a more fluid fashion.

Travel Takes Up A lot Of Time

When you’re president, you constantly have to jet-set across the globe. Even with the luxury of not having to go through airport security, traveling all across the planet takes up a lot of time. Of course, Air Force One is an environment that is relatively conducive for the President to get things done but can you imagine what having constant jet lag must feel like?

That wraps up another facts-filled video. Most of us could agree that our jobs aren’t nearly as demanding as a President’s. Can you imagine having every one of your moves and decisions be scrutinized by the entire world?
