The American economy continued to roar to life under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress this week, with Target CEO Brian Cornell saying it’s the strongest he’s “seen in his career.”

Cornell was speaking with industry insiders on a conference call Wednesday when he praised the robust recovery; adding “shares are surging” months after the Republican-sponsored tax cuts.

“There’s no doubt that, like others, we’re currently benefiting from a very strong consumer environment — perhaps the strongest I’ve seen in my career,” said Cornell.
