President Trump welcomed Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte to the White House on Tuesday. The two leaders discussed the long history and shared values between the two countries as well as issues of trade, defense and security.

After the meeting, Prime Minister Rutte was in for a shock when he saw firsthand just how loud and inappropriate journalists are towards the President.

Facing down a hostile press is a daily occurrence for President Trump. For a person who is not used to that kind of treatment, it can be quite the shock.

President Trump answered a few questions from the press before bringing the session to a close. The journalists on hand were not satisfied and started shouting their questions loudly at the President. The noise grew into such a swell that individual questions could not be heard.

With a surprised expression on his face, Prime Minister Rutte turned to Trump and asked, “Is it always like this?”

What do you think about Prime Minister Rutte's reaction to what President Trump experiences on a daily basis?
