John Bolton, former National Security Advisor, says Trump spends all of his time watching television

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton claims that President Trump spends most of his time glued to the television, even in the Oval Office, according to New York Daily News.

  • During an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Bolton said:

“You could clock the amount of time he spent actually in the Oval Office, versus the amount of time he spends in the little dining room off the Oval Office with the cable news networks of one form or another.”

  • President Trump has been repeatedly criticized for his hands-off approach to the presidency, frequently going on golf trips and retreating to his luxury properties.
  • White House insiders say that Trump’s work day rarely starts before 11am, and when he makes his way to the office, it’s not usually so that he can dive deep into his work.
  • Bolton also suggested that Trump rarely listens to his official advisors and rather makes decisions through “a combination of television and listening to people outside the government that he trusts for one reason or another.”
