Is President Trump Feeling A Bit Overwhelmed?

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, President Donald Trump revealed the responsibilities of being president were “massive.” In addition, making the decision to launch missiles into Syria weighted heavily on him.

“When it came time to, as an example, send out the 59 missiles, the Tomahawks in Syria. I’m saying to myself, ‘You know, this is more than just like, 79 (sic) missiles. This is death that’s involved, because people could have been killed.” Trump said

“This is risk that’s involved, because if the missile goes off and goes in a city or goes in a civilian area… and if this missile goes off and lands in the middle of a town or a hamlet. Every decision is much harder than you’d normally make,” Trump added.

Trump also went on to compare his life in business to his now life in government.

“Pretty much everything you do in government involves heart, whereas in business, most things don’t involve heart. In fact, in business you’re actually better off without it. The financial cost of everything is so massive, every agency. This is thousands of times bigger, the United States, than the biggest company in the world.”

Trump also went on to claim that he didn’t know what WikiLeaks was, despite the praise he gave the organization throughout his presidential campaign.
