On A Regular Basis

From yesterday’s presser.

The most painful aspect of my presidency has been knowing that good men and women have died in combat. I read about it every night. My heart breaks for a mother or father, or husband or wife, or son and daughter; it just does. And so when you ask about pain, that’s pain.

But I — look, my heart breaks for them, it just does, on a regular basis.
