The Conference Board said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index climbed to 113.7 in December, up from 109.4 in November and the highest since it reached 114 in August 2001.
The index measures consumers’ assessment of current conditions, which dipped from November but was still very positive, and their expectations for the future, which hit a high.
Later on Tuesday, Trump thanked himself for the consumer confidence surge. He took to Twitter to note that the numbers of confidence levels are the highest the index has climbed in more than 15 years. Trump added, “Thanks Donald!”
