Trump arrived today. Met with several European CEOs at a dinner round-table.

He speaks tomorrow. Makes me a little nervous when Trump speaks at things like this, naturally, weird to be nervous when the POTUS is set to deliver an address right.

He rides in on a wave of optimism.

DAVOS, Switzerland ó As Bank of America chief executive Brian Moynihan travels the world in 2018, he says he keeps hearing the same thing over and over: Foreign businesses want to pump money into the United States again after President Trumpís tax cuts. Like the White House, he thinks the positive bounce from the tax bill could be far bigger than most experts predict.

Trump in Davos: threatens Palestinians, reassures Brits

Catherine Lucey, Associated Press Updated 4:28 pm, Thursday, January 25, 2018

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) ó President Donald Trump barreled into a global summit in the Swiss Alps on Thursday, threatening to stop U.S. aid to the Palestinians and dismissing as a "false rumor" the idea that there are tensions in the U.S. relationship with Britain.

Trump's debut appearance at the glitzy World Economic Forum was hotly anticipated, with longtime attendees of the free-trade-focused event wondering how the "America First" president would fit in. Crowds clustered around Trump as he entered the modern conference hall, the president telling passers-by that he was bringing a message of "peace and prosperity."

Trump framed his visit as a sign of positive things happening for the U.S. economy.

"When I decided to come to Davos, I didn't think in terms of elitist or globalist, I thought in terms of lots of people that want to invest lots of money and they're all coming back to the United States, they're coming back to America," the president told CNBC.

His meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a close ally, was their first since the president announced earlier this month that he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. embassy there. The declaration delighted Netanyahu and outraged Palestinians, who declared a new U.S.-led peace push dead and refused to meet with Vice President Mike Pence during his recent visit to the Mideast.

Trump took that as an affront.

"They disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see them and we give them hundred of millions of dollars in aid and support," Trump said. "That money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace."

Netanyahu was effusive in his praise for Trump, saying the president's recent announcement on Jerusalem was a "historic decision that will be forever etched in the hearts of our people." The Palestinians, in turn, said Trump's "language of dictation is unacceptable," in the words of spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeneh.

Past American presidents have expressed irritation with the Palestinian leadership but no previous administration has threatened to cut off assistance to the Palestinians unless they agreed to negotiate with Israel.

Washington has contributed over $5 billion in economic and security aid to the Palestinians since the mid-1990s. Annual economic aid since 2008 has averaged around $400 million, much of it devoted to development projects. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said all bilateral assistance to the Palestinians, including economic security aid, is at risk if the Palestinians don't come to the negotiating table.

Trump, who has called an agreement to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict the "ultimate deal," said Thursday that he had taken Jerusalemó one of the thorniest issues ó "off the table," although U.S. officials have stressed repeatedly that the decision has no impact on negotiations over the borders or sovereignty of the holy city. Trump told Netanyahu that Israel had "won" on the matter but would have to make concessions to the Palestinians in any eventual talks.

Trump met separately with British Prime Minister Theresa May, batting away the idea that their relationship is strained after he canceled a recent visit to London and May criticized him for retweeting a U.K. far-right group's anti-Muslim videos.

Trump declared it a "really great relationship." May described it as a "really special relationship."

But their meeting was more muted than Trump's session with Netanyahu and they did not respond to shouted questions about the videos.

After the meeting, May's office said the two leaders "concluded by asking officials to work together on finalizing the details of a visit by the President to the UK later this year." White House officials said the visit would be a "working visit," featuring less pomp than a full state visit. They said plans for an official state visit would come later.

Absent from the Davos scene: first lady Melania Trump. She was originally scheduled to attend the forum but later scrapped that plan, citing scheduling and logistics problems. The reversal came after reports emerged of an adult film star's account of an alleged affair with Donald Trump in 2006.

Trump is the first sitting president to attend Davos since Bill Clinton in 2000. The protectionist-leaning president's last-minute decision to attend the annual gathering for political and business elites was unexpected. Trump has criticized global pacts, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on trade, demanding changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement and announcing his intent to exit the Paris climate accord.

But he drew enthusiastic praise for his tax-cut law at a dinner that he hosted Thursday for more than a dozen business executives from Nokia, Adidas, SAP and other companies, with the business leaders praising his tax plan and pledging to invest more in the United States before their tucked into their beef tenderloin.

Trump called the assembled executives, all male, "some of the greatest business leaders in the world," before asking them to go around the table and talk about how their businesses are doing in the U.S.

While the businesses praised Trump, another Davos takeaway was that, without Trump's participation, other countries are still moving forward with trade deals.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed at Davos this week that his country and the 10 remaining members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership have revised their trade deal following the U.S. withdrawal.

Trump said in an interview with CNBC that he would consider re-entering the TPP if it was a "better deal" for the U.S.

"The deal was terrible, the way it was structured was terrible," he said.

Top Trump officials this week insisted that "America First" did not mean "America alone." Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the philosophy simply means that "President Trump is looking out for American workers and American interests, no different than he expects other leaders would look out for their own."

Other administration officials had a clear message for critics.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said Davos "should feel very flattered" by Trump's attendance. She added: "Those that don't want to listen, you can ó they can ó leave."

Not a very interesting subject here I see.

Not long ago, it was very unexpected that the President would be attending and after the announcement there was a good bit of speculation on how he would fit in here....with the global elitists, the European leaders who let's just say don't see eye-to-eye with Trump.

Trump clearly was very comfortable with the crowd that featured many CEOs and business people, the business community, much more so than how his comfort level appears around politicians by comparison.

He promoted America. Not quite in the language he has before, the delivery was more veiled, but the substance was still all about America.

The world didn't begin with Trump, even though the President often seems to think that way. Foreign companies and countries have been investing here for many decades. There is certainly renewed enthusiasm for doing so now. Trump made the pitch that there has never been a better time to invest in the US market, the US consumer and the US worker than now.

President Trumpís World Economic Forum attendance brought accolades from World Leaders and many of the most influential business chiefs. Many recognized President Trumpís leadership and business prowess in bringing America out of an economic malaise and subsequent help to the worldís economy.

One of the best moments was Germanyís Angela Merkel admitting that her countryís (and the EUs) open borders policy failed and the Germany was examining implementation of an entry/exit system.

The Global Warming Whackjobs were there to protest.
No protest happened because they were snowed in.

Doesn't mind that the world is laughing as is 60 some percent of the USA. The good news is Trumpy will always have his 30 some percent base, and the base is all that matters.

Trump could only wish that he had the respect that Obama had. Look at Germany & England as examples. On the other hand,Trump has the respect of Russia.

You guys...honestly, sometimes you all are the ones that make me laugh.

It was ignorant for Trump to tweet about the Britain First thing - worthy of criticism, I'm not suggesting otherwise. So then I would think, you all would want him to apologize right? Or you would rather he double down on it, or....I'm confused. It would seem an apology is what you would want - which he does and for some reason he is chided here for doing so. An apology from Trump is quite a rare event. I'm not saying you have to praise him for it, but you want it both ways.

quote:
ďI donít want to be involved with these people,Ē Trump told Morgan, according to the hostís tweet. ďIf youíre telling me theyíre horrible racist people. I certainly apologize.Ē


Is the world laughing at Trump or the United States or both? If they are, were or will it doesn't matter. I never care if people laugh or make fun of me. Do you actually care if people laugh or make fun of any of you? Doubt it. If there are mutual interests at stake our country will work with other countries - I don't see that changing.

Trump wasn't disrespected at Davos. Sure, many of the European leaders would rather he didn't attend. But did the rumored orchestrated protest walkout happen? No. From the moment he arrived the President was greeted well despite some strong disagreements on issues that are important to some people there. CNN even said"Trump gets rock star reception" and Richard Quest said he's never seen anything like it in his years at Davos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOOs_YEAblM

the President wasn't snubbed, wasn't made to feel unwelcome. The United States still matters and I don't see that changing regardless of who is President.

You may be right. I stand corrected. It's more of an ownership thing.

Very strange that the Amnesty Prez can't come to criticize Putinco.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/26/full-text-trump-davos-speech-tran script-370861

My administration is proud to have led historic efforts at the united nations security council and all around the world to unite all civilized nations in our campaign of maximum pressure to de-nuke the Korean peninsula. We continue to call on partners to confront Iran's support for terrorists and block Iran's path to a nuclear weapon"

Comments: We cannot de-nuke N. Korea unless we obliterate them.

Iran will not give up their nuclear power, and we should not keep sanctioning them. They have a right to live in their land however they see fit. We just cannot rule the world. They never threatened to nuke Israel, they just want the regimes that have been in power to not be there, but God is going to create war against Israel no matter what anyone does. He is going to allow the anti-Christ to sit in the new Temple that is being built right now in Jerusalem. The anti-Christ will rule the world for several years, one world govt., one world order, one world leader, one world army - except those darn Taliban. God has plans for them to fight along with the real Jesus when he gets back when the real Jesus launches his own jihad against the imposter and destroys him, liberating Jerusalem. God allows Isis to pillage and wage war because it will help the anti-Christ be able to assume power. If there was no rebel group waging war, how would all the regular governments go down and become so weak that the anti=Christ would be able to assume power and territory? The prophecies will be fulfilled. Read the New Testament, it describes the wars and the things that happen. We are living in those times. The situation in Syria will not end. War will still be going on when Jesus returns and Jesus cannot return until after the anti-Christ has risen to power and is sitting in that new temple in Jerusalem.


"We are committed to insuring that Afghanistan never again become as safe haven for terrorists who want to commit mass murder to our civilian populations."


Comments:
The Afghan Taliban did not host Al Qaida, nor Isis. An Arab who owned Tora Bora gave it to Osama. Yes Omar was aware that he lived there, but it was not his problem until our war began over there. Mullah Omar told Osama he had to move on and leave his country after that onslaught when our troops went to Afghanistan. Osama told Omar he needed a year to do that because of the size of his group that needed to be relocated. Omar granted him that, then when the seize of Tora Bora happened, Osama and the others left. (these things were specified by Osama's son, Omar, and Osama's first wife who jointly wrote a book about their lives and what went on in Afghanistan). Afghanistan belongs to the Afghans, native born Taliban live in rural areas, and that should be their right to live their way in their lands. They never had a desire to come to the US, they never threatened the US or sent people here to do attacks. They denounced the attacks of 911, and they did not even retaliate after a US drone strike in January 2002 killed Omar's son and wife while he was visiting a relative, not even out of the car for 5 minutes when the drone hit. After that God refused to let the US find or assassinate Omar. When he died, he died peacefully during Ramadan, and was granted martyrdom status because he never backed down from doing what he knew to be right. He defended his homeland and his religion from people who came there attacking them. He asked for proof that Osama did 911, he said he would hand him over if proof of his guilt was presented. Nothing was ever presented to them. People questioned it then, and still do.

Sure it still matters. It matters because of $$$, not because who is president. The president also seemed to have behaved with some dignity and respect toward the office and to others, just like the president before him and the one before him.

President Trump is lauded by World Leaders and Captains of Industry (those who provide jobs and the products the people demand).

The far-left extremists just can't stand it that President Trump is doing great.
