Recently the private schedules of Donald Trump have been leaked.

In those files, at the end of each day there is some acronym RON placed. What does this stand for?

Example:

  1:30 PM          EXECUTIVE TIME
  (3hr, 30 min)    Location:        Oval Office

  RON:             The White House

Apparently that's a common (in government/Washington DC, anyway) scheduling acronym which stands for "remain overnight."

The globe-trotting secretary of state and globe-trotting former president each kept up frantic travel schedules, which meant they were often not in the same place at the same time — or even on the same continent. The calendars indicate where Hillary and Bill each spent the night: "RON," in Washington parlance, the acronym for "remain overnight."

On weekdays, the Clintons typically spent the evenings in their separate homes — Hillary in northwest Washington near her office at the State Department, and Bill in Chappaqua near his office in New York. But the Clintons spent a lot of time traveling the world. On March 17, 2010, the entry read: HRC RON En route Moscow/ WJC RON White Oak, FL. Other exotic RONs: HRC RON London, England/WJC RON Stockholm Sweden. HRC RON Abu Dhabi, UAE/WJC RON London, England. HRC RON Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi, WJC RON Chappaqua, NY.
