Trump Announces He Is Cancelling Trip to Davos ‘Because of Democrats Intransigence On Border Security’
President Donald Trump announced he will not be attending this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. He said he will not attending because Democrats will not budge on border security, thus continuing the government shutdown.
“My warmest regards and apologies to the @WEF,” he added.
Because of the Democrats intransigence on Border Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my very important trip to Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. My warmest regards and apologies to the @WEF!

Talking with reporters early Thursday, Trump was still deciding if he was going to attend.
“I intended to go and speak in front of the international community in Davos. That’s still on, but if the shutdown continues — it’s a little while from now — but if the shutdown continues, I won’t go,” he said.
After Thursday, the current shutdown will be the longest in U.S. history.
