Washington - President Donald Trump is pushing back against criticisms that a leak of his private schedule suggests he is not working hard.

Trump tweeted that it “should have been reported as a positive, not a negative.”

He also suggested that when the term “executive time” appears on his schedule, it means he is “generally working, not relaxing.”

The president’s work ethic has been a topic of Washington conversation after Axios obtained three months of his private schedules.

They revealed that he spent 60 percent of his time in executive time, a term coined by former chief of staff John Kelly for unstructured time in Trump’s day. That time often coincides with when Trump is on Twitter.

Acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said the leaker’s identity should be known this week.

That’s not treason. As much as you may dislike it. Criminal maybe. Treason not.

Not treason if it's not classified. Just like Republicans sharing polling data with Russians. Giuliani said not treason because it isn't classified.

Trump seems to spend a lot of time watching Faux TV and golfing between tweets. If he could only learn to read the daily briefings prepared for him instead of depending on TV for his briefings he might learn some facts.

Isn't treason the crime that Donald J Trump and Donald Trump Junior were involved in along with the others caught by Mueller?
