Donald Trump is taking credit - and thanking himself - for a surge in a key gauge of consumer confidence.
The president-elect writes on Twitter that The Conference Board reported Tuesday that its consumer confidence index had climbed to 113.7 in December.
Trump notes that’s the highest the index has climbed in more than 15 years, and adds, “Thanks Donald!”
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 13-year high.
