  • Swiss petition to keep Trump out of Davos

"At this year's World Economic Forum, the president looks forward to promoting his policies to strengthen American businesses, American industries, and American workers".

Free trade is especially popular among Davos attendees.

Trump's election victory dominated conversation at the World Economic Forum a year ago, though the administration didn't send any official representatives. The spotlight was moved to the Chinese President Xi Jinping, who delivered an impactful opening speech, praising the good sides of globalization despite its' shortcomings.

American administrations regularly send representatives to Davos, but presidents often decline to attend. Onetime Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci also appeared in a panel at Davos a year ago.

Chinese President Xi Jinping participated in the conference a year ago.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump will use the forum to make the case for his policies to the global leaders. He withdrew the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement between Pacific Rim countries, and pulled out of the Paris climate accord, a commitment to reduce carbon emissions.

Trump waves as he walks across the South Lawn of the White House to depart by Marine One, in Washington, DC, USA, 16 June 2017.

This year's theme reflects the gathering's worldwide flavor: "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World". There's a randomness element that's hard to quantify.

Davos was once held up by the Trump campaign as an example of what was wrong with Hillary Clinton's Democratic party.
