President Trump Allegedly Suffering From 'Cabin Fever'

President Donald Trump is reportedly already experiencing "cabin fever" after living only one month at the White House.

This is despite the White House having 132 rooms and 147 windows, according to the official government website.

Trump complained to reporter Mike Allen that he has been experiencing headaches since leaving Trump Tower and his familiar 5th Avenue stomping grounds, reports the Daily Mail.

He has also been experiencing a series of political setbacks, which might be contributing to the problem, notes Business Insider.

In addition to the worldwide outrage at his travel ban, his National Security Adviser, Mike Flynn, was forced to resign. Trump's replacement choice, retired vice admiral Robert S. Harward, turned down the job. Then, Trump's nominee for Secretary of Labor, the fast food magnate Andrew Puzder, withdrew himself from consideration due to bipartisan opposition in Congress.

Almost every weekend since taking office, Trump has escaped to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. While again in Florida on Feb. 18, Trump made his now-famous "last light in Sweden" comment to a crowd of supporters.

“You look at what's happening. We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?”

The remark, with its implication that there was a terror attack in that country, baffled people around the world who wondered what he was referring to, observes The New York Times.

On Twitter, former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt wrote: "Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking?"

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to clarify, saying that the president was referring to crime in general in Sweden, not to a particular attack.

On Feb. 19, Trump said on Twitter that his mysterious reference pertained to something he'd seen on Fox News about immigrants in Sweden.
