US President Donald Trump thought job ‘would be easier’

US President Donald Trump thought job ‘would be easier’, by AFP.

He misses driving, feels as if he is in a cocoon and is surprised at how hard his new job is.

President Donald Trump yesterday reflected on his first 100 days in office with a wistful look at his life in business and televisions before the White House.

“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” he told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.” …

Mr Trump, who said he was ­accustomed to not having privacy in his “old life”, expressed surprise at how little he had now. And he made clear he was still getting used to having 24-hour Secret Service protection and its accompanying constraints.

“You’re really into your own ­little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can’t go anywhere,” he said.

When the President leaves the White House, it is usually in a limousine or an SUV. He said he missed being behind the wheel himself.

“I like to drive,” he said. “I can’t drive any more.”
