The economy barely grew, expanding at an annual rate of only 0.7 percent.
• The growth was a sharp decline from the 2.1 percent annual rate recorded in the final quarter of last year. It was the weakest quarterly showing in three years.
• Consumption, the component reflecting individual spending, rose by only 0.3 percent, well below the 3.5 percent rate in the previous quarter.
The first-quarter performance upset expectations for a Trump bump at the start of 2017.
