Trump Looking at the Possibility of Hiking the Minimum Wage

Oh boy, this guy can't be trusted on even basic stuff.

“I'm looking at that, I'm very different from most Republicans,”  Donald Trump told CNN's Wolf Blitzer about the prospect of increasing  the minimum wage.

“You have to have something you can live on. But what I 'm really looking to do is get people great jobs so they make much more money than that, much more money than the $15.”

During a November appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump said the current minimum wage is too high and was slowing job growth.

"We have to become competitive with the world. Our taxes are too high, our wages are too high, everything is too high,” he said. “What's going to happen is now people are going to start firing people.”

Here is Milton Friedman on the minimum wage:



  1. Trumpets continue to tell me that Trump isn't a socialist, I cant wait to see their defense of this.

  2. You were correct - Trump will be the same kind of crony mafioso as Hillary, but he will be able to entrance the masses and "get things done", unlike Hillary.

  3. Man, those "Black lives matter" are going to be upset!

  4. Garry Johnson is going to alot of Republican votes this fall.

  5. Glad so many that want freedom are so supportive of the prospects of a known suppressor of rape victims, murderer, internationalist, warmonger might help defend the status quo by "not getting things done". Is this what libertarian in-fighting has become? Even the great Ron Paul is getting in the fray now. So disappointing....

  6. I'm a member of Dr. Block's Libertarians for Trump group. Although, Dr. Block has not advocated Trump's victory; only him getting the nomination. Since he has, barring some shenanigans from the RNC the Libertarians for Trump group will disband.

    I am a libertarian, but I still support Trump. Yeah, he's a blowhard. Yeah, this "wall" is ridiculous. But Dr. Block's point, look at those other people! Look at Hillary! A total War Monger.
