When Donald Trump made a delayed dash to his wife’s hospital bed yesterday following reports she’d undergone surgery without him, many could have put it down to the POTUS’ busy schedule.

After all, he is the President of the United States and has a jam-packed schedule.

But with Melanie’s spokesperson confirming the first lady was recovering well after having surgery to treat a benign kidney condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Trump’s schedule for the day has been revealed.

Trump later tweeted while he was on his way to the hospital at 5pm on Monday, however it appears he didn’t have the most hectic of days before jumping on Marine One.

In fact, there were a total of three things on his schedule that morning, one of them being a one-hour lunch with Vice President Mike Pence.

President of The New Agenda Amy Siskind tweeted out what appeared to be the run sheet for Trump’s day, with 11am seeing him having an intelligence briefing.

At 12.30, he had lunch with Mike Pence, which was followed by a press briefing schedule at 1.30.

Trump’s trolling over the matter has continued, with the public not only siding with Melania but wondering exactly what Trump does with his day.
