In a new interview, President Donald Trump said he’s working “long hours” and revealed how much sleep he’s getting each night.
Trump told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that he’s sleeping around four to five hours each night.
“I am working long hours, long hours, and right up till 12:00 a.m. or 1:00 a.m.,” Trump, 70, told Fox News in an interview that aired on Tuesday night. The president then said he wakes up at around 5 a.m. each morning.
“While I eat, I read the papers, I see what’s going on on television,” he said of his breakfast routine.
The president then slammed media outlets’ coverage of his administration.
“I take a look. I see the lies … I call it, you know, fake news. In some of the networks and some of the papers, the level of dishonesty, where they will take a story that should be good—I know good from bad,” Trump said, “They will take something that should be a good story—in fact, sometimes I say, ‘This is going to be nice to read’—I say, ‘Whoa!’ And they will purposely, totally change it. It’s fake news.”
Throughout the election and his presidency, Trump has been accused of being racist in the press. When asked if it bothered him, Trump noted that it’s a common tactic used by opponents of the GOP.
“No, because they always do it,” Trump said. “The first thing they do with the Republicans or conservatives is the racist card, they pull out the racist card. They always do that, not just with me. They do it with everybody. And I see that, and once you know that, you feel a lot better.”
