President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump reportedly compared living in the White House to living in a 'Venezuelan jail' according to Business Insider.

"Lilian Tintori, who is married to Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, was at the White House to discuss human rights in Venezuela. Many view Lopez as a political prisoner who has been jailed for nearly 14 years on trumped up charges related to a period of deadly anti-government protests in 2014. During the visit with Tintori, Trump seemed unfamiliar with her and her experiences, according to The Washington Post, though he reportedly knew enough to have "praised her past a reality television star in Venezuela's version of 'Survivor.'" Trump and the first lady also reportedly tried to commiserate with Tintori through a source of their own discomfort — the White House. Melania said she sympathized with what Lopez had gone through in jail in Caracas, Venezuela, noting that the White House felt as confining as prison, two people familiar with the meeting told the Post. Trump reportedly agreed."
