Donald Trump never sleeps aboard Air Force One and wakes up every hour as an assistant to overtake & # 39; or to gossip or to discuss unfavorable media coverage.
Current and former officials claim that trips to the White House can be difficult and often long hours, but several private individuals said that flights abroad are easily the worst.
The duration can last almost 20 hours and the sleeping space is limited. Not surprisingly, Trump, 72, sees Fox News on board and his employees always up to date when there are negative headlines about him.

The trip from Trump to Tokyo this weekend marks the start of several summer trips to five countries, including the UK and Ireland, with 80 hours of flying abroad.
When he first took office in 2016, the staff called for travel abroad.
But three years later, several officials told it CNN that they do their best to prevent them from traveling because of the chaotic nature that usually accompanies them.
They claim that Trump usually stays in the foreship during flights and eating, watching television or reading newspapers.
He also talks to staff and calls friends and supporters home. One official claimed that when he sees something on television that upset him, & # 39; what he will invariably do & & # 39 ;, an official joked, he asks them to correct it.
He also spends hours checking news broadcasts about cables or goes through cardboard boxes full of newspapers and magazines carried on board.
He also tends to wake sleeping staff members and bring them to his office when the plane is dark to discuss his upcoming meetings or to formulate an answer to media coverage.

One official claimed that the president would fix that day on a negative head, instead of looking at his remarks about upcoming bilateral meetings or browsing through a briefing book.
& # 39; He won't go to sleep & # 39 ;, an employee told CNN. Trump is known not to need much sleep, he said earlier that he only sleeps four to five hours in the White House. And he sleeps less on Air Force One, according to officials who fly with him.
He stays outside with his assistants and will even chat with them about sport or gossip at home, even though they are encouraged to join First Lady Melania Trump in their private cabin and get some rest.
There are no designated sleeping places, so flight attendants sleep on miniature couches or lean back in office chairs and rest their feet on the desk.

He also prefers to arrive at his destination and goes straight to his hotel, even for a few hours.
While former presidents often flew through the night to save time, Trump often arrives at his destination overnight and his conversations begin the next day.

Between meetings with Kim Jong Un in Vietnam earlier this year, Trump ventured his anger on Air Force One as he watched his former lawyer Michael Cohen testify on Capitol Hill, Trump noticed a liar and claimed he avoided paying taxes.
Trump also complained about stays he claimed were unsuitable and not according to his standards, his assistants said.
The White House Communications Agency provided a streaming service that enabled him to keep track of his favorite programs when he discovered that Fox News was not available in one hotel.
He usually asks for several televisions in his room, depending on the size of the room, a source said.
Trump would take trips where he is the guest of honor instead of the major summits that consist of parts of every American president's calendar.
In the past, Trump felt felt summarized by other leaders & # 39; at the G7 and G20 meetings, said administration officials.
