Trump Hints At Flip-Flop On Federal Pay Raises

CNN reports:

President Donald Trump said he’s planning to spend the weekend studying up on the issue of government compensation a day after alerting lawmakers he was moving to freeze pay for federal employees.

“I’m going to be doing a little work over the weekend,” Trump said in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he was touting a new administration initiative on retirement savings.

“I’m going to be studying the federal workers in Washington that you have been reading so much about, people don’t want to give them the increase, they haven’t had one in a long time, I said I’m going to study that over the weekend.”
