Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘I lost all my friends’: Trump says being president has ruined his social life”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Trump told a rally in Wisconsin on Thursday that he knows “a lot of very successful people,” but that they treat him differently now that he’s president.

“Now they call me up: ‘Mr. President, sir, would you like to get together sometime?’ I say: ‘Loosen up. Call me Donald, you’ve known me for thirty years.’”

He bemoaned how “respect for the office” has made personal relationships far more difficult. “I lost all my friends,” Trump told the crowd. “They used to be loose. They used to be great. I’m not a drinker but you can sit back and have a drink, whatever you’re drinking. Now you can’t do that anymore.” 

Perhaps most distressing, Trump claimed that now he “has to rely on people in Congress” to be his friends – humorous given the legislative branch’s notorious unpopularity, not to mention the president’s seemingly endless squabbles with lawmakers. The joke garnered laughter from the audience.

Trump narrowly won Wisconsin in 2016, but is currently trailing behind Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the state, according to the latest polls. A recent survey by Morning Consult gave Biden a nine-point lead over the incumbent.
