It might be authority in general, not President Donald Trump, that is making young Americans so uneasy, according to a report from Vested, a New York-based public relations agency.

In a survey of millennials aged 20 to 35 years old who were asked whether they would trust Trump with their finances, 40 percent answered yes, 40 percent answered no and 20 percent said they were unsure.

Many millennials, 42 percent, said that they are taking a “wait-and-see” attitude when it comes to their financial plans during the Trump administration, while 30 percent said that their financial decisions were unaffected by the Trump win.

When asked how they thought the economy would perform over the next five years, a slight majority of respondents, 51 percent, felt positive, while 25 percent thought the economy would worsen. The remaining 24 percent believed that the economy would remain the same.

The research found that one in five millennials making more than $100,000 per year are not investing in financial markets. Overall, 12 percent of the respondents said that they would move to the sidelines.

Yet when Vested asked millennials about the probability of a financial crisis within the next five years, they were slightly less optimistic. One-third of the respondents, 33 percent expect another crisis, while 23 percent were optimistic that a crisis could be avoided. Vested linked these feelings to the 2008-2009 financial crisis, which affected a majority of respondents to some extent.

According to Vested, millennials surpassed generation Xers and baby boomers as the largest generation in the workforce in April 2017.

Millennials have low trust in traditional institutions, especially banks. While only 25 percent of respondents reported trusting the government, and 21 percent reported trusting the banks, big banks were trusted by only 20 percent of the respondents. More faith was placed in big technology companies like Apple and Amazon, which were trusted by 34 percent of respondents.

Many millennials still struggle with student loan debt: While most of Vested’s respondents, 52 percent, did not have any student loan debt, 30 percent of them carried balances of at least $10,000.

For its report, titled "Millennials and Money: : Why These Whiners are Ignoring Your Marketing Campaigns," Vested surveyed 401 millennials between May 1 and May 15.
