Three years ago Trump said wages are too high

Business Insider, 2015 Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump argued during the Tuesday-night Fox Business Network debate that US wages are "too high"— and he didn't back off the next morning when pressed.

"It's a tough position politically," Trump admitted during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"We have to become competitive with the world. Our taxes are too high, our wages are too high. Everything is too high. We have to compete with other countries."

The leading Republican presidential candidate raised eyebrows with his initial comment, which was in response to a question about raising the minimum wage.
