Trump: Being president is a 'big burden on the family'

President Trump said his position as president has affected his family life published in an interview Sunday. The president told the Washington Times, “There is no question; it is a big burden on the family.”

Even the media is treating Trump’s family members badly which the president also criticized. The president said his wife, Melania Trump, was terribly abused by the press which for him is really unfair. "She's a high-quality person. She's been amazing for the country," he said. He added that his wife had been a “great representative.”

A CNN polls early March showed Mrs. Trump had an approval rating of 52 percent which doubled from her level of approval from a year earlier. People are starting to know her and she is winning over her detractors

Trump also talked about his 11-year-old son, Barron. Barron is currently living in New York with the first lady and the two are expected to move to the White House once Barron finished up the school year. The president acknowledged that the transition is rough on his son.

Trump did not want to transfer his son to another school in the middle of the season. Barron is playing with his soccer team in New York. He is friends with the team and he’ll be taken away from that team once he moves to the White House. The White House has not said which school Barron will attend in Washington.

During the interview, the president also brushed off an incident last week about his elder daughter, Ivanka Trump who faced a tough audience during a women's panel in Germany as she spoke of her pride about Trump’s advocacy to women.

As a devoted father, the president paid special attention to the incident. He said he listened to the tape of the event and found the audience reaction as “very minor”. Trump said his daughter Ivanka gave an answer and was cool. He believed she can handle it.
