Donald Trump Says He ‘Thought It Would Be Easier’ Being President
By Erica Abbott
President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office have not been as easy as he thought they would. As he reminisced about his job before the White House, Trump admitted that he thought being president would be easier than the work done in his “previous life.”
In an interview with Reuters, Trump reflected on his first 100 days by sharing the difficulties of the job. “I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump said in the interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.” He also shared maps of the 2016 electoral college results, confessed that he’s still not used to 24-hour security and said he misses driving himself. “I like to drive,” he added. “I can’t drive any more.”
Trump’s 100th day in office is Saturday, April 29. He is expected to mark the milestone with a “big rally” in Pennsylvania.

“I thought it would be easier” is really not what you’re hoping to hear from the guy you just hired for the most important job in the world.

“This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.” What sane, intelligent person thinks being POTUS would be easy?

Our president said he thought “it would be easier.” Did he not see the before/after shots of past presidents? https://t.co/PuhvVAL2ii
