During a recent interview with Reuters, Donald Trump stated that being president is overwhelming and not something he was prepared for. Going into in he believed being president would be much easier than being a CEO of a major corporation.
Trump stated that he often feels like he is in a “cocoon,” he misses driving and that he was surprised to discover how hard being president is.
He also reflected on his first 100 days saying, “I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump said. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
During the interview, Trump showed that he is still obsessed with the election and refuses to admit that Hillary Clinton had bigger numbers. In the middle of a conversation about Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump suddenly stopped and began passing out what he said were the latest figures for the 2016 electoral map.
“Here, you can take that, that’s the final map of the numbers. It’s pretty good, right? The red is obviously us,” Trump boasted.
Trump’s issues with being president may stem from his lack of compassion. Many people have stated that Trump has no heart.
“In business, you don’t necessarily need heart, whereas here, almost everything affects people,” Trump said. “So, if you’re talking about health care — you have health care in business but you’re trying to just negotiate a good price on health care, et cetera, et cetera. You’re providing health. Here, everything, pretty much everything you do in government, involves heart, whereas in business, most things don’t involve heart.”
