Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that he likes “giving” the minimum wage “to states to determine” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

So, what’s good for New York is not necessarily good for some place else. .. So, I really like giving it to states to determine.
