After completing 100 days in office, President Trump has expressed his views about the job that he took in January this year. Trump said he initially thought that the job of a president would be easier.
Media has criticised Trump’s first 100 days in office by stating that he has failed to achieve any major legislative victory and also, his approval ratings have been dipping ever since.
During an interview with the Reuters, Trump said that he absolutely loved his previous job and was happy with the way things were going on. He expressed his displeasure about the amount of work he has to do in this new role
“I loved my previous life, I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump said in an interview with Reuters. “I actually, this is more work than my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
He later added, “I do miss my old life. This — I like to work. But this is actually more work.”
President Trump also talked about missing the freedom he used to have before he occupied the Oval Office and how his pre-presidency days allowed him to do anything he wanted without formal obligations. This concern has been raised by his predecessors who took the office and found themselves bundled inside the security ring of the White House.
“And, while I had very little privacy, in my old life because, you know, I was famous for a long time. I really — this is a much less privacy than I’ve seen before. This is, you know, something that’s really amazing. At the same time, you’re really into your own cocoon because there’s such massive protection, that you really can’t go anywhere,” Trump said.
President Trump said he misses driving as he can no longer drive due to security reasons. He said he would love to go behind the wheel.
This admission from Trump is shocking, as he had claimed to solve all the problems facing the US without much hassle. He had also promised proper execution of plans during his election campaign.
While addressing the reporters from Reuters during the interview, Trump said, “Here, you can take that, that’s the final map of the numbers. It’s pretty good, right? The red is obviously us.”
