WASHINGTON (KFTK) - This could be an issue both sides of the aisle could come together on.

President Trump has endorsed the idea of making Daylight Saving Time permanent. 

"Making Daylight Saving Time permanent is O.K. with me!"

Instead of shifting the clocks back later in the year, they would remain at the current time. 

There were many reasons multiple locations across the globe started daylight saving time. In most parts of Europe, it started so that fuel could be saved during World War I. 

Arizona and hawaii are the only two states that do not take part in Daylight Saving Time.
