Trump: I ‘Like’ Giving Minimum Wage To the States

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.

Trump said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:50] “[T]he only thing I am talking about a little bit is I want — I like the idea of the states looking at minimum wage, because if they don’t, New York is totally different than if you go to Alabama or Arkansas…you’re talking about a whole different cost of living. 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. Plus, they have to compete with each other, among other things, but they have to compete with other. So, I like the concept of giving it to states.”
