Trump: Making daylight saving time permanent is 'OK with me'

President Donald Trump thinks it's a good idea if daylight saving time becomes permanent

WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump thinks it's a good idea if daylight saving time becomes permanent.

A federal law specifies that daylight time applies from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November in areas that do not specifically exempt themselves. More than two dozen states are considering measures to avoid the twice-yearly clock change.

Trump tweeted Monday that making daylight saving time permanent is "O.K. with me!"
