Trump also said he misses his pre-presidency freedom.

This is, you know, something that’s really amazing. At the same time, you’re really into your own cocoon because there’s such massive protection, that you really can’t go anywhere. I like to drive. I can’t drive anymore,” he said.
According to Reuters, Trump frequently turns to outside friends and former colleagues for advice and positive reinforcement.
