Trump Abandons Last Vestiges of Conservatism, Promises a Considerable Hike in Minimum Wage

This is your candidate, Republicans.

After a GOP convention filled with liberal, Socialist ideas, such as cradle-to-grave big government care, the end to the “culture wars,” which means a push back against religious freedoms, now the new face of the Republican party is taking another step left.


Donald Trump said Tuesday night that the federal minimum wage must be raised, and promised to implement a $10 per hour wage if elected president.

“I would say $10,” Trump told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly when asked about the specific figure he would recommend. “But with the understanding that somebody like me is going to bring back jobs. I don’t want people to be in the $10 dollar category very long. I believe it should be raised.”

Trump is laying down this proposal in response to Democrats, who have said he wanted to lower the minimum wage.

Not to be outdone by his liberal pals, Trump is pretty much blowing up everything conservatives and small government proponents have stood on.

The billionaire businessman said he would use the federal wage as a base and encourage states to implement their own minimum wage that is higher than the $10 figure. But he also said some states need higher wages while others do not.

“If you take New York, it’s very expensive to live in New York,” Trump said.

It’s not his first foray into hating heartless Republicans over the minimum wage. We knew about this long before his nomination was official.

Republicans, you had one job …
