Trump supports making daylight saving time ’permanent’

President Trump tweeted that he is ’O.K.’ with making Daylight Saving Time ’permanent’. Trump’s tweet came at the start of 2019’s Daylight Saving Time, which begins each year on the second Sunday in March, starting at 2 am. The debate around Daylight Saving Time has been on since its inception, with many arguing the policy is unnecessary and disturbs sleep patterns.

Out here in Arizona we don't have DST. A native American once asked what DST is and after it was explained to him he responded, "Only white man can cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sow it to the bottom of the blanket and think he has a longer blanket". No truer words have ever been spoken.

Here in EU, we actually put it up for Europe wide vote. Well, petition really, but still. And we arrived at the same conclusion. Glad to see there is SOMETHING I agree with Trump on
