President Donald Trump had some blunt words for New Yorkers who live upstate and are looking for work.
What do you think about President Trump telling jobless upstate New Yorkers to move out of state?
Not the best solution and inappropriate for a president to say
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the president said upstate New Yorkers who don't have jobs should move to states like Wisconsin, where Foxconn is building a $10 billion plant that will create 3,000 jobs.
Trump told The Journal: “I’m going to start explaining to people, when you have an area that just isn’t working like upper New York state, where people are getting very badly hurt, and then you’ll have another area 500 miles away where you can’t get people.
"I’m going to explain, you can leave. It’s OK. Don’t worry about your house."
Trump, who owns the $19 million Seven Springs estate in Bedford, also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor.
The Trump name also adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains, Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, Trump Park Residences in Yorktown and the Donald J. Trump State Park on the Westchester/Putnam border.
