image for Trump didn’t know White House schedule was public: ex aide

The surprising revelation was shared by former White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere in his testimony to the House Jan. 6 committee that was made public on Tuesday.

“Every evening we prepared and released the daily guidance for the following day of the president’s public schedule.

Beginning sometime around mid- to late December, the president discovered that, for the first time, my understanding, that we released a public schedule of his to the public,” Deere told the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Donald Trump spent nearly four years in the White House before learning that his daily schedule was made public.

The guidance drafted by Deere for Jan. 6 and approved by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany read: “President Trump will work from early in the morning until late in the evening.

The White House daily schedule notably changed around Jan. 5, 2021.

The panel referred four criminal charges to the Department of Justice, accusing Trump of insurrection, conspiracy to defraud the US, and obstruction of an act of Congress. »
