Not even 2 days after both Cruz and Kasich suspend their campaigns for the GOP nomination the ONLY candidate left is “open” to new ideas about campaign promises he made!
Donald Trump suggested Wednesday that he would be open to lifting the minimum wage, switching his previous primary campaign stance that the U.S. could not afford to hike the current federal rate of $7.25 per hour.
Asked specifically if he was “open to raising the minimum wage” during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Trump responded: “I am open to doing something with it, because I don’t like that.”
“But,” he added, “what I really do like is bring our jobs back so they’re making much more than the 15 dollars.”
At a GOP debate in November, Trump said “We have to leave it the way it is.” when asked about raising the min. wage. “People have to go out, they have to work really hard and have to get into that upper stratum,” he said. “But we cannot do this if we are going to compete with the rest of the world. We just can’t do it.”
What changed? Surely not the economy, not in two day’s time. So was Donald lying? Is this just his way of trying to win more votes? Hillary Clinton is open to $12 minimum wage, while Bernie Sanders wants a $15 wage increase. Is this just a smart tactic to win more Democrats over to the GOP side by giving an open-ended answer or his he showing his true colors as some have feared saying that he’s just out to win the nomination? Is this Trump just being a 2-faced liar after getting what he wanted? It wouldn’t be the first time would it?
What do we believe? Is he just a brilliant strategist or a two-faced liar?
