The GOP frontrunner is hoping the public has a bad case of collective amnesia. Who else thinks he was really telling the truth when he called wages in the United States too high?

Here he is flip flopping on ABC this Sunday. He knows this issue is going to kill him in the general election if he doesn't:

Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, said Sunday that "people have to get more," after spending time on the campaign trail striking down the possibility of a minimum wage hike.

"I am looking at it, and I haven't decided in terms of numbers. But I think people have to get more," Trump said on ABC News' "This Week."

Trump has said that the wages were too high in the country, notably at a debate in November. Trump told ABC host George that it was a different opinion than previously expressed.

"Sure, it's a change. I'm allowed to change," he said. "But my real minimum wage is going to be — I'm going to bring companies back into this country, and they're going to make a lot more than the $15 even."
