President Donald Trump has discovered that being president is a hard job – harder even than being a reality TV star and real estate brand-builder.
“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview earlier this year. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
This particular revelation may be shocking but it shouldn’t be surprising. This is the man who asserted before taking office that “I could actually run my business and run government at the same time.” And while he may have abandoned his “previous life” to some degree, he’s still executive producer of “Celebrity Apprentice” (a role that by one estimate is is still paying him millions of dollars) and spends many a weekend golfing at Mar-a-Lago.
But self-proclaimed Mr. ‘I alone can fix it’ has had trouble, big trouble, in his new job. Not only has he not been able to get one single piece of legislation through Congress in over 150 days in the job, he is now under investigation by the FBI for possible involvement with Russia’s attempt to interfere in a U.S. presidential election.
Yup, ‘The Donald’ actually has to do some work to succeed and he really doesn’t like that.
