*With the annoying misdirection of the Mainstream Media (MSM), it is difficult to get a handle on just what transpired in the first 100 days of President Trump. We know that stock market advanced something like 12% and consumer confidence has risen to its highest level in 16 years although the MSM doesn’t mention those kinds of new items. Here is Judge Jeanine Pirro discussing the President’s first 100 days.*
*Consumer confidence remains high, according to the latest figures from The Conference Board. The readings remain around their highest levels in over a decade. For some reason the mainstream media doesn’t report much on this.*
“Consumer sentiment continued to travel along the high plateau established following Trump’s election, with only minor deviations from its five month average of 97.4. There was widespread agreement among consumers on their very positive assessments of the current state of the economy as well as widespread disagreement on future economic prospects. Although the partisan divide has slightly narrowed in recent months, it still reflects a very pessimistic economic outlook among Democrats and a very optimistic outlook among Republicans. The partisan divide on the Expectations Index was 51.0 points in April (61.4 vs. 112.4), down from last month’s 63.1 (59.4 vs. 122.5), with Republicans moderating their optimism more than Democrats reduced their pessimism,” Surveys of Consumers chief economist, Richard Curtin noted.
