ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) - With stock markets declining again, the White House on Monday said the fundamentals of the U.S. economy are strong.

“Markets fluctuate, but the fundamentals of this economy are very strong and they are headed in the right direction,” White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters on Air Force One as President Donald Trump flew to Ohio.
