US President Trump to WEF Davos: "US is Open for Business"

US President Trump to WEF Davos:

Trump is set to arrive at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Thursday to declare that the United States is open for business.

"I think the feeling is mutual about liking each other a lot", he said. "I've got great respect for everything you're doing". Trump looked at May and said nothing could happen to Britain in which the US would not come to its aid.

Trump angered China and South Korea this week with new tariffs on solar panels and large washing machines. In another blow to the president, First Lady Melania Trump decided against accompanying him on the trip, with many believing the recent reports of his extramarital affairs having played a part in the decision.

It was not immediately clear what money Mr Trump was referring to in his threat.

"These companies employ some of the brightest minds in the world", she reasoned- and should be doing more to protect users-especially children.

He will also stress his "America First" policies and seek more reciprocal trade policies from US allies, Cohn said, in keeping with Trump's belief that global trade deals are tilted against the United States.

Trump responded by telling May to concentrate on terrorism taking place in Britain.

Oil hits $71 for first time since 2014
Crude sitting in storage at delivery and pricing hub Cushing, Okla. has also fallen in recent weeks, lifting oil prices. But analysts are still anxious about USA shale producers that are quick to increase output when oil prices rise.

His sentiments were shared by many other leaders at Davos, including America's European allies and big economies like China and Japan.

The meeting with Kagame comes not long after participants in a White House meeting said Trump had referred to African nations as "shitholes".

May, who addressed the forum earlier in the day, had lobbied for a meeting with Trump after their relationship deteriorated over a series of sticking points, including Trump's retweeting anti-Muslim videos produced by a British nationalist group. Trump then decided he will not attend the opening as he does not approve of the new embassy's Nine Elms location; south of the River Thames and slightly outside the center of London. "And we continue to have that really special relationship between the U.K. and the United States, standing shoulder-to-shoulder because we're facing the same challenges across the world".

Instead, Tillerson had to stand by on the sidelines of the meeting to listen to what was being discussed as Trump bantered with with the business leaders in attendance.

Trump, probably, won't do any major rubbing it in during his speech. But the first few weeks of 2018 have been defined by political battles over government spending, Trump's incendiary Twitter feed and explosive revelations in a new book that portrays Trump as an unstable leader.

According to sources close to his office, Macron will address three global challenges:Â economic and social inequalities, the fight against climate change and global leadership in the face of nationalism and extremism.
