This news is not a coincidence. Unlike most of the people in Washington DC, Trump understands that if you create an environment that is hospitable to business and growth, you will get good results.
That’s exactly what he’s doing.
We Are Winning Again: Consumer Confidence Booms to Highest Level in 16 Years
Consumer’s confidence in March rocketed to the highest level more than 16 years, according to data released Tuesday. America’s middle class, in particular, registered huge gains in confidence.
The Conference Board said its consumer confidence index soared to 125.6 in March, up from 116.1 in February. Economists had expected a decline to 114.1.
Measures of consumer and business confidence continue to defy experts by climbing ever higher since the election of President Donald Trump. Despite media reports of hate crimes and an ongoing narrative that America has unentered a period of uncertainty and ill-will, surveys of consumers show that Americans are feeling better than they have for nearly all of this century.
Trump gets excited talking about positive developments in business. You see it on his Twitter feed all the time:
Big announcement by Ford today. Major investment to be made in three Michigan plants. Car companies coming back to U.S. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!
