Donald Trump, the Republican party’s current front-runner, has apparently changed his position on increasing the minimum wage in the United States.

“Wages in are country are too low, good jobs are too few, and people have lost faith in our leaders. We need smart and strong leadership now!” said Trump in a tweet early Monday.

Trump’s tweet follows a Sunday interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” in which Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) stated “Look, many of Trump’s supporters are a working-class people, and they’re angry,” and added, “And they’re angry because they’re working longer hours for lower wages. They’re angry because their jobs have left this country and gone to China or other low-wage countries.”

Sanders went on to say “In fact, he has said that he thinks wages in America are too high.”

Trump issued a flurry of tweets between Sunday night and Monday morning in which he denied a previously held position, stated in his opening remarks at a Fox Business Network debate on November 10, that “Taxes too high, wages too high, we’re not going to be able to compete against the world… People have to go out, they have to work really hard, and they have to get into that upper stratum.”

Trump reiterated in an interview on NBC’s “Morning Joe” the day after the November 10 debate that “It’s a tough position politically… 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.”

Trump later claimed in an interview with Politico that his statements were specifically in regard to raising the U.S. minimum wage, not wages in general.
