REPORT: John Kelly Added ‘Policy Time’ to Donald Trump’s Schedule to Get Him to Focus on Policy Issues

That should do it.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has reportedly instituted a schedule block for President Donald Trump, complementing the “executive time” the Commander-in-Chief already enjoys on a daily basis.

Politico’s Annie Karni tweeted on Tuesday that “policy time” will now be given to the president so he can reflect on the immediate issues facing the administration.

The Washington Post reported in April that Trump’s policy time was the brainchild of Kelly. In it, the president holds “sessions once or twice a day where advisers present and argue their competing views over a specific issue, with Trump presiding.”

WaPo noted Kelly “has also implemented bimonthly Cabinet meetings, with a focused agenda, as well as restored order to the morning senior staff meeting,” and that “attendance for most Oval Office meetings is still run through Kelly’s office.”

Josh Dawsey of the Washington Post added in a tweet on Tuesday that policy time “was installed earlier this year to help him focus on issues. A Kelly creation. It sometimes goes better than others.”

What will Trump actually be doing?

Currently, Trump uses “executive time” to watch Fox News and conduct personal business.
