Vicente Fox Quesada, the former Mexican leader, has an epic response to President Trump’s candid remarks about the difficulties of the presidency.
In a Thursday interview, three Reuters reporters spoke with Trump in the Oval Office to get his take for how he views the highest office in the land as his 100th day in the White House approaches. Bizarrely, the former game show host and real estate scion told Reuters that he thought being President of the United States would be a leisurely change from his old life of being on TV and playing golf, and lamented that he had round-the-clock security protection and wasn’t allowed to drive himself anywhere anymore.
“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters’ Stephen Adler, Jeff Mason, and Steve Holland. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
Fox couldn’t resist tweeting at President Trump from his official account, telling the businessman and reality TV host to please return to his old job and leave the White House to someone more competent.
“Being president ain’t easy, you know?” tweeted Fox, who was President of Mexico between 2000 and 2006. “Just leave, go back to golfing. America will understand.”
.@realDonaldTrump, a 100 days! Being President ain't easy, you know? You're tired, just leave, go back to golfing. America will understand.

Trump is astonishingly short of both public approval and actual accomplishments as his 100th day approaches tomorrow. A recent poll found that Trump is the least popular president in more than 70 years compared to approval ratings of previous presidents on their 100th day. President Trump has also little else to show for his time in office, aside from executive orders, cabinet confirmations – and at least 16 rounds of golfing.
