In an interview with Reuters on Thursday, President Donald Trump acknowledged that being president is tougher than he had imagined.

“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” he told Reuters. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

Trump said that he misses driving and noted how restricting it is to have constant Secret Service protection.

“You’re really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can’t go anywhere,” he told Reuters.
