It looks like Donald Trump is starting to understand how difficult it is to be president.
According to CNN, Donald Trump is having a difficult time in the White House following his 9-day international trip.
Trump was in a “glum mood” when he left for the trip, and his return has only made him feel worse.
Instead of celebrating the overseas trip, which had him touring the Middle East and meeting with the Pope and European leaders, Trump returned to the continuing controversy over Russia.
He was preoccupied with legal issues and staff problems as the controversy placed his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as part of a counterintelligence investigation.
Sessions with lawyers are nothing new for this litigious ex-businessman; but with infinitely higher stakes, this was different.
According to CNN’s Gloria Borger, the presidency is not a “natural fit” for Trump.
“He now lives within himself, which is a dangerous place for Donald Trump to be,” says someone who speaks with the President.
“I see him emotionally withdrawing. He’s gained weight. He doesn’t have anybody whom he trusts.”
The question, he adds, is whether Trump will understand the enormity of what he faces or will instead “be back to being arrogant and stubborn.”
He will have to realize that “all this trip really did was hit the pause button.”
According to sources, because Trump is so down-and-out, he might finally listen to some professionals,”He only really listens when he’s down in the dumps.”
But in the end, Trump only listens to Trump. Mistakes are made by Trump.
One ally stated that Trump believes he has no responsibility for any of this political trauma, that it is created by the mainstream media concocting conspiracies where none exist:
“He’s sitting there saying, like he does with everything, ‘You guys work for me. Fix this.’”
