After accomplishing much in his first 100 days in office, President Donald Trump revealed what effects this new lifestyle has had on his family in an exclusive interview with the Washington Times.
“There is no question, it is a big burden on the family.”
Since Trump has been in office, him and other members of his family have faced criticism from the media and public, especially First Lady Melania Trump, 11-year-old son Barron Trump and his oldest daughter Ivanka Trump.
Melania and Barron are currently living at Trump Tower in New York, which the First Couple has continuously faced criticism for, but the decision was in the best interest of their child.
“[Melania’s] been terribly abused by the press, really unfairly. She’s a high-quality person. She’s been amazing for the country.”
“I have a son who’s a very young boy — he just turned 11. 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.”
Despite the various attacks on Melania, Trump mentions that her poll ratings continue to increase and people are ‘getting to know her’. He also commented on Ivanka being ‘booed’ recently, saying ‘she can handle it’.
