USA Today reports:
President Trump said he’s learned that he can’t always run the government like a business because millions of people are impacted by the decisions he makes as president.
“When you’re a businessperson, you don’t have to worry about your heart, the heart. You really do what’s best for you — you know, for almost purely monetary reasons,” Trump told a group of news anchors at the White House in advance of his State of the Union address Tuesday night.
Trump, a real estate mogul, campaigned in large part on his résumé as a businessman. Now that he’s president, Trump said he has to put himself in the position of people who will be affected by his decisions on issues like immigration.
