Trump isn’t your regular POTUS. Why judge him so? – News

Several of his detractors maintain that he’s un-presidential and unsophisticated. but let’s just agree that he’s unconventional.

US President Donald Trump spends a lot of his working hours in what has been billed as ‘executive time’ in official documents leaked by Axios. Executive time is hyperbole for twiddling your thumbs and goofing off, a section of the press would want their audience to believe. The leaked 95-page report reveals that, in the three-month period between November 2018 and February 2019, Trump spent almost four times the amount of time (297 hours) as ‘executive time’ compared to 77 hours of scheduled meetings, 51 hours in travel, and 39 hours in lunch.

Interestingly, on a typical day, the US President spends three hours of ‘executive time’ before his 30-minute tte–tte with the (acting) Chief of Staff, an hour of ‘executive time’ after that (before a one-hour lunch break) and then at least a couple of hours of ‘executive time’ punctuated by some travel and/or official meetings and events.

Several of his detractors maintain that he’s un-presidential and unsophisticated. but let’s just agree that he’s unconventional. Why, then, do we insist on measuring him by the same yardstick that was used to measure his predecessors? Instead of goofing off, he could be golfing with the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. And is it really twiddling your thumbs if you’re setting and announcing US policy – on matters as serious as Syria and Iran – on Twitter?
