FLASH: The Trump Policies are working
US consumer confidence was up in April as Americans felt more optimistic about present and future economic conditions, underscoring how a tight labor market and higher wages are underpinning attitudes amid some uncertainty.
The Conference Board’s index climbed to 129.2, according to data from the New York-based group Tuesday that topped economist estimates.
The gauge of views on the present situation increased to 168.3, while the expectations index climbed to 103.
Economists pay close attention to the index because consumer spending accounts for 72% of US economic activity.
Again, The Trump Policies are working.
Making and Keeping America Great!
