Eric Trump Reveals How Becoming President Ruined Donald Trump’s Life

Eric Trump went on the record with Westchester Magazine to say that Donald Trump’s life is far worse now that he is president, according to Newsweek.

Although Eric was originally being interviewed about his daily life with his wife, the conversation “somehow” turned to how miserable his father is being president. While Eric confirms his father’s life is worse now than what it was before he was president, what Donald Trump told one source is likely to be the smoking gun (page 7).

1. It’s no secret how Donald feels about being president

Donald Trump has dropped a number of clues that he doesn’t love his new job. He spends far more time golfing than working, heading down to Mar-A-Lago every chance he gets. He also complains quite a bit, from the “fake news” coverage he receives to the Mueller investigation. Donald also appears to despise all things that are part of running a government. He talks about hating everyone at work, plus he doesn’t seem to have a firm grasp on what exactly he is supposed to be doing.

Next: Was he ever happy on the job?

2. Donald seemed uncomfortable in the Oval Office from the start

Early signs point to his unhappiness, according to CNN. During what should have been his honeymoon phase, Donald seemed like a fish out of water from the beginning. In early public appearances, Donald seemed distant, possibly apathetic. He almost seemed to enter the White House feeling defeated, even though he won the election.

Next: This may be one reason why he doesn’t love being president.

3. He misunderstood his job title

Could one reason he’s miserable because he doesn’t truly understand that being a CEO is completely different than being commander in chief? When you run your own business, what you say is basically law, CNN reports. If you didn’t like what someone did at work, you would simply fire the person. However, being the president is very different, which likely rubbed Donald the wrong way. The media fact checks him and when he’s found to be lying, he’s called out on his lies.

4. Eric Trump couldn’t help himself

Despite the numerous (and somewhat obvious) hints that Donald Trump was miserable, his son, Eric Trump confirmed everyone’s suspicions when he met with a reporter from Westchester Magazine. “My father’s life became exponentially worse the minute he decided to run for president,” Newsweek recounts. “He didn’t need to do this, but he was immensely frustrated with where the country was going.”

Next: Eric isn’t overly thrilled about his father’s job either.

5. Eric isn’t happy his dad is president

Eric Trump continued to offer more insight, but this time about how his father’s presidency impacted his life. “Every day, you get abused by somebody,” Newsweek recounts. “And the next thing you know, you’re being parodied on Saturday Night Live. It comes with the territory. We stood center stage with my father during the campaign and beyond.”

Next: And this sibling isn’t happy either.

6. Donald Trump Jr. is equally as unhappy as his dad

Eric’s brother, Donald Trump Jr. is also miserable thanks to his father’s new job, according to Newsweek. One source said deal-making is hindered because he’s under such intense scrutiny. Don Jr. can’t wait for his father’s presidency to end too, the source said. Plus since Donald became president, Don Jr. and wife Vanessa divorced.

7. This came from the horse’s mouth

Donald Trump talked to conservative Charlie Kirk only a few months ago and revealed more than he probably wanted about being president. When asked what advice he would give to his 25-year-old self, Trump had this response: “Don’t run for president,” Newsweek reports. He went further to say, “All my life I got the greatest publicity…until I ran for office.”
