Trump Says That His Being President Is A 'Big Burden' For His Family

President Donald Trump spoke to the Washington Times and told the paper that his presidency has been a 'big burden on the family'. Mainly, and not surprisingly, the POTUS blames this on the media.

An interview published in the Washington Times reveals that President Trump told reports, "There is no question, it is a big burden on the family.”

The former businessman and reality star is referring to his position in the highest office in the world. But Mr. Trump doesn't think the job itself is what's taking its toll on them. He believes it's the media that has been making it difficult. He points out that First Lady Melania Trump, in particular, has been 'terribly abused by the press'.

"Really unfairly," Trump told the Times. "She's a high-quality person. She's been amazing for the country."

Mrs. Trump has had some praise for the press but has also been criticized for being slow to transition to her new role, and the press has slammed her with rumors about her being a prostitute before she met Mr. Trump.

The president sees his wife as being a 'great representative' of the U.S. "In fact, her polls: She went up 29 points, did you see that?" he said. "But she’s been very highly abused by the press, which was very unfair. And now people are starting to know her.”

Mr. Trump backs up Mrs. Trump's decision to remain in New York City until their 11-year-old son, Barron, finishes out the school year. “He’ll be taken away from his school and be put into a brand new school. He likes playing on his soccer team in New York, they’re all of his friends, and you know he’ll be taken away from that team. We didn’t want to do it in the middle of a season.”

The president says his daughter and White House aide, Ivanka Trump, has also been treated unfairly. He referred specifically to her being booed and hissed at by an audience in Germany last week during a women's panel. “I listened to that, and you had to listen pretty [carefully] — that was not booing like we all know it,” Trump said. “She gave an answer, and she’s cool. She can handle it.”
