Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says he would raise the federal minimum wage.

“At least 10 dollars, but it has to go up,” Trump responded when asked if he would raise the federal minimum wage during a press conference.

“I think that states should really call the shots,” he added, using his home state of New York’s high cost of living as an example.

Trump added that he’s going to bring jobs back from other countries such as Mexico.
