    Donald Trump has already indicated he may abandon his positions on two major policy issues: a minimum wage increase and tax cuts for the rich, NBC News reported.

    Trump told CNBC on Thursday he backed away from his original tax plan and that he is “more into the middle class.” Trump put out a tax plan last year with major cuts to income, estate and business taxes for the ultra-wealthy, with far less generous cuts for the middle class. 

    On Wednesday, Trump was asked on CNN whether the $7.25 minimum wage should be increased.

    "I am open to doing something with it, because I don't like that," he said.
