The president is also lamenting his loss of privacy, describing life in the White House as being in “your own little cocoon.”

The president made his comments in an interview with Reuters, one of several he’s done to mark his first 100 days.

He also told Reuters he’d like to see a diplomatic resolution to escalating tensions with North Korea.

But he warns, “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict” with the country.
