Trump plans America First ‘vindication tour’ in Davos
Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump’s announced trip to an annual meeting of the rich and powerful in Davos, Switzerland , seemed to some a strange match: the populist President satisfying the internationalist elite.
But people involved in scheming the trip say Trump is enthusiastic about taking his unapologetic brand of economic patriotism to the World Economic Forum, where his presidency has been mostly met with turned up snouts. Instead of adapting his message for the free trade-and-multinationalism-loving crowd, he’ll reinforce the very expressed the belief that some at Davos find worrying.
“It’s a vindication tour, ” one person familiar with Trump’s thinking said, describing the President as looking for a “victory lap” on the world stage after he and fellow Republicans successfully slashed the corporate tax rate. He’s likewise likely to tout record-breaking markets and solid task growth as evidence his economic policies are working.
