President Trump noticed a report in the Wall Street Journal Friday afternoon, which stated that “U.S. consumers’ confidence hit a fresh 14-year high this month, as lower-income households reported feeling more optimistic about the economy.”
The WSJ report continued: The University of Michigan on Friday said the preliminary result of its consumer-sentiment index was 102.0 in March, up from 99.7 in February. That was the highest level since January 2004, and well above the 99.0 economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal had expected.
Trump tweeted a link to the article, repeating the headline in his tweet: “U.S. Consumer Confidence Hits 14-Year High” .
