President Donald J. Trump addressed the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting—more commonly known as “Davos”— to tell global leaders why “America First” won’t mean the rest of the world falls behind.
“Only by insisting on fair and reciprocal trade can we create a system that works not just for the United States but for all nations,” the President said. He also made his pitch for investing in the U.S. economy. “America is open for business and we are competitive once again.”
Yesterday, President Trump spent his first full day in Switzerland bolstering relationships with key allies. He met with British Prime Minister Theresa May before holding a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later in the afternoon.
While both meetings covered a range of issues, trade was an important common thread.
“We continue to have that really special relationship between the UK and the United States, standing shoulder-to -shoulder because we’re facing the same challenges across the world,” Prime Minister May told reporters after meeting with President Trump.
