Did Trump really think being president would be easy?

On Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck and the guys talked about President Donald Trump’s steep learning curve for his first 100 days.

Trump recently said being president was harder than he thought it would be. "This is more work than in my previous life,” he told Reuters. “I thought it would be easier."

Glenn couldn’t believe Trump missed how much the presidency has aged our past leaders, exclaiming, “All you have to do is look at the pictures of the presidents when they go in and then when they come out to realize it’s a hard job! I mean, they look like Moses every time they come out.”

Stu talked about Trump’s flip-flops and why they’ve actually been a good thing with issues like NATO and trade relations with China. He wondered how you grade a president who didn’t even think about the issues before being elected:

“The process to get to that decision bothers me a lot. He was elected essentially without fully thinking these issues out, and I think that’s a terrible precedent and a terrible idea; however, I think he actually landed in the right spot on that. … To me, I think that’s actually a positive. Some of the things I like of the Trump first 100 days is him not acting on the bad things he promised to do.”

Glenn pointed out that the downside is always that Trump doesn’t really learn; he just flips on issues with no sign of a real change of heart.

“We still have a man who is in control of the military and in control of world events that the president can say one thing and it can spiral into horrible things, and here’s the problem: In no way has he shown a learning curve of humility, of slowing down on some of those things,” Glenn said.
