Trump's infrastructure promise hasn't moved markets much

Donald Trump promised during yesterday's inaugural address that America soon will "build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation."

Axios' Mike Allen explained this morning that Trump's speechwriters "see a huge infrastructure bill as a way to attract voters, especially minorities, who opposed Trump in 2016."

Investors appear to be taking Trump at his word, although it's still more tentative than exuberant.
