A sign marks the entrance to a job fair in New YorkThe signs of a robust jobs market could ease concerns about the health of the economy, which were underscored by other reports on Tuesday showing a drop in small business confidence in January to a two-year low and further declines in wholesale inventories. "If the labor market is tightening, can the economy really be faltering?" said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors in Holland, Pennsylvania.

Trump was under pressure to deliver a victory after he was beaten in the first nominating contest - the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1 - by Texas Senator Ted Cruz despite having had a big lead in pre-caucus polls.
