Q A lot of people are saying this is too early to be in campaign mode. What’s your response to that?
THE PRESIDENT: Life is a campaign. Making our country great again is a campaign. For me, it’s a campaign. To make America great again is absolutely a campaign. It’s not easy, especially when we’re also fighting the press and the media. So, I’ll see you out there.
Q How are your National Security Advisor interviews going?
THE PRESIDENT: Very good. We’re meeting three of four of them tomorrow. I have many, many that want the job, they want to really be a part of it. I’ll make a decision over the next couple of days. But we’re meeting, actually, four tomorrow. All of them very much want it.
Q Are you leaning towards one?
THE PRESIDENT: Probably, yeah.
Q Which one?
