'Being the president is a bigger job than I thought' - Trump Donald Trump has admitted the presidency is "a bigger job than I thought", a leading Republican has revealed.
After meeting the president-elect last week, former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich told 'USA Today' the billionaire businessman was starting to appreciate the burden of the Oval Office.
Mr Gingrich said: "He commented, 'This is really a bigger job than I thought.' Which is good. He should think that."
As president of the United States, Mr Gingrich said "you have war and peace, you have enormous powers...and it all comes down to the Oval Office and it all comes down to you."
After President Barack Obama met his successor at an official meeting in the Oval Office, sources inside the White House told 'The Wall Street Journal' that Mr Trump "seemed surprised by the scope" of responsibilities the job entails.
The newspaper also reported Mr Trump had been unaware he would have to replace the entire presidential staff upon taking office.Source and more: http://www.independent.ie/world-news/north-america/us-election-2016/being-the-president-is-a-bigger-job-than-i-thought-trump-35261686.html
