Here’s How President Trump Starts His Days Now in the White House

Jan 25, 2017

President Donald Trump spends his mornings at the White House watching cable TV and reading three newspapers and ends his nights watching more television, he said in a new interview.

The newly inaugurated commander-in-chief detailed to the New York Times on Wednesday how he structures his days and how he has been adjusting to his new home in Washington, D.C.

Trump told the newspaper that he rises every day before 6 a.m. and devotes his first waking moments watching an unspecified cable channel in a dining room in the West Wing and reading The New York Times, The New York Post and The Washington Post. Then he tackles meetings at about 9 a.m.

Trump, who the Times noted does not read books, finishes his day by watching TV in the White House, which he praised as “beautiful” and “elegant,” according to the paper.

“There’s something very special when you know that Abraham Lincoln slept there,” he said. “The Lincoln Bedroom, you know, was his office, and the suite where I’m staying is actually where he slept.”
