TRUMP: BEING PRESIDENT IS “A BIG BURDEN ON MY FAMILY”

In an Interview with the conservative Washington Times, Trump complained that being President “is a big burden on the family.”

While it is perfectly understandable that Trump’s youngest son would be affected by the move from New York City to Washington D.C., (it’s hard to leave all your friends at a young age) it doesn’t seem that the rest of his family members are suffering.

For instance, his daughter Ivanka now has an office in the West Wing of the White House, serving as the President’s de facto deputy Secretary of State, while her husband, Jared, is the most powerful adviser in the White House.

Both Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump enjoy traveling to exotic locations for Trump business under the watchful eye of America’s secret service.

And Trump’s business continues to expand internationally as he uses the American Presidency as a springboard for advancing his family’s own pecuniary interests.

Trump’s wife, America’s first lady, lives in an expensive pied-à-terre (term is used sarcastically here) in New York City that is costing U.S. taxpayers hundreds of million dollars to secure.

While being President has been tough for Donald, it is hard to say that his family is actually suffering, at least compared to most Americans.
