Lol. It doesn't. But nothing Trump says or does jibes with anything he has said and done in the past.

That is why Trump debated Trump on the Late Show. He is totally two-faced and means very little he says. That leaves him free to ignore it and pretend he's never said it. The faithful don't see to mind his hypocrisy and will defend that and his dishonesty and phoniness with the most twisted logic you have ever heard.

when will lessons in the English language, nuance and its usage become mandatory in schools??????


Listening to a liberal interpret Trump's words, sans context and perspective, provides the proof that the public school system has failed and needs to be replaced.


Speaking strings of English words fluently, apparently is misleading evidence of the ability to communicate.

Perfectly logical to me. Trump is out of touch about anything as mundane as wages since he never had to worry about money. Not sure what your point was that you were trying to make.

You took it out of context and cherry picked one sentence to base your contempt on.
0.34% of the US workforce makes minimum wage. It's pretty much irrelevant at a country scale. He said wages are too high and we've lost manufacturing jobs because of it. Which are not minimum wage jobs and the current minimum wage is $7.25. His comments are a statement in the present tense. Not a speculative future. They "are too high" not "would be too high".
