— -- Is President Donald Trump the nation's workaholic in chief?

Judging by his sleeping habits, he may have a rightful claim to that title.

"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' Bill O'Reilly during an interview on "The O'Reilly Factor" that aired Tuesday night.

He told the host of "The O'Reilly Factor" that he wakes up at 5 a.m., meaning he gets four to five hours of sleep -- far less than the seven to nine hours of sleep the Mayo Clinc recommends.

And always the multitasker, Trump said of his breakfast routine, "While I eat, I read the papers, I see what's going on television."

Not missing an opportunity to slam the media, Trump added about his TV viewing, "I take a look. I see the lies ... I call it, you know, fake news ... The level of dishonesty, where they will take a story that should be good. I know good from bad. 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."
