US President Trump to WEF Davos: “US is Open for Business”
President Donald Trump to meet with world leaders, dine with business executives and declare America “Open for Business” during his trip to the Davos WEF Summit this week.
White House officials said Tuesday the President is going to the World Economic Forum (WEF) to promote his economic policies.
He departs late Wednesday and arrives in Switzerland Thursday.
President Trump meets with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday.
There is a reception in his honor Thursday night and he will host a small dinner for European companies.
Friday, he meets with Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Swiss President Alain Berset, before delivering his Keynote address.
Top Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn says the President is going to Davos to “tell the world that America is open for business.”
We can expect President Trump to use the WEF Davos to set the stage for his State of the Union speech and explain America’s economic prospects.
Hundreds of protesters, some masked, are marching in Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city, to denounce the World Economic Forum and the planned visit of President Donald Trump to Davos.
With a guard of shield-bearing security forces keeping watch, the marchers in Zurich are chanting slogans, clapping and waving flags with anti-capitalist messages on them. One at the front read: “Dump the Trump,” and others said simply: “Smash WEF.”
