Business, Political Leaders Size Up Trump's Speech at Davos

Donald Trump has stated the U.S. is "open for business" - claiming that "America first" does not mean "America alone".

President Trump addresses a session during the 48th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on January 26, 2018.

J.P Morgan Chase head Jamie Dimon-also speaking from Davos-said he's "bulled up...that policymakers are making good policy decisions in the US about taxes, about proper regulatory reform".

One of Trump's first actions in office was to pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the trade agreement among a dozen countries that included provisions, among other things, created to bring equity between countries in copyright laws. Aides held Trump's arms as he walked across the snowy landing zone to his waiting vehicle - a wintry metaphor, perhaps, for entering the conference with caution. It's the home of the World Economic Forum where world leaders and business executives drink expensive wine, eat fancy meat and throw up in hot tubs. "The world is witnessing the resurgence of a strong and prosperous America ..."

"Many countries are very good at the rhetoric of free trade but in fact actually practice extreme protectionism", Ross said. His decision to sign new tariffs boosting American manufacturers this week has prompted fresh concerns about his nationalist tendencies. There has never been a better time to hire, to build, to invest and to grow in the United States.

"I know you're going to your first meeting shortly".

"I should say, I only take Bayer", Trump said. "Our country is finally WINNING again!"

"When it comes to terrorism, we will do whatever it takes to protect our nation", Trump said, adding that the fight against radical Islam is not over. Dispensing with the blood-and-soil nationalism of his last major address in Europe, Trump instead framed his presidency as that of a deregulating tax-cutting business titan.

"There were few surprises, if any", said former USA diplomat John Negroponte to us.

Trump made no mention of climate change and his announcement previous year that the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

The president is set to address the forum Friday.

On Friday his fundamental message was that following big tax cuts the great destination for foreign investment and that putting America first was a not a call for isolationism.

Trump is expected to deliver a speech antithetical to the praise of globalism typically shared among the world's elites in Davos.

But not everybody focused on negative tidbits in Trump's speech or his remarks afterward.
"We're not particularly concerned", Mnuchin said. He met with the leaders of the UK, Israel, Rwanda and Switzerland.

The 55-nation African Union chaired by Kagame demanded an apology, although Trump has denied making the remark as relayed by United States lawmakers who were present at the meeting.

Donald Trump's campaign promises were far from empty bluster. He also criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan following a terror attack previous year. The Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer and other Democratic senators have also emphasized that the shutdown of the US government is the result of some Republican senators' cooperation and that the Democrats are not entirely to blame for this.

"The general positive reaction was, he wasn't as terribly offensive and divisive as we've seen other times", Sperling said. Like it or not, he is the democratically elected President of the United States and acknowledgement of that office should be accorded, even if his policies are noisome to many. His invitation for mutual economic advancement was an implicit answer to criticism that he is leading a retreat from American global leadership. "There are two Trumps: the Twitter Trump and the teleprompter Trump". A brief government shutdown threatened to derail the Davos trip altogether. Some observers have interpreted Trump's contentious language toward its trading partners as a threat for trade wars.

Mr Trump's appearance in the United Kingdom is not expected until the second half of 2018. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said new barriers to trade could pose a danger on a par with climate change and extremist attacks.

Trump used parts of his speech at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in the Swiss alpine resort of Davos to assuage such fears.

US President Donald Trump has said that he supports free trade but it has to be fair and reciprocal. It should be noted that the USA government's shut down occurred after Congress failed to overcome a standoff over spending and immigration laws.

"This is about an America First agenda".
