Trump will attend economic forum in Davos
WASHINGTON President Donald Trump, who won election as a populist and railed against free trade agreements, will attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The annual conference, to be held Jan. 23-26, has brought together international leaders of nations, business and finance at the Alpine ski resort since 1971 to discuss global cooperation. Given its elitist reputation, most presidents have not attended and Trump skipped it last year; his decision to go may reflect the waning influence of anti-globalists around him. This year's theme reflects the gathering's international flavor: "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World." Yet a White House statement indicated Trump would not hesitate to bring his nationalist message to the assemblage of globalists.
