In the final speech by a world leader at this year's Davos globalists-fest, President Trump will address The World Economic Forum (and we suspect millions around the world) this morning to remind them that 'making American great again' will help their global growth goals.
Having been character-assassinated yesterday by George Soros, we wonder if Trump will go off-script among the globalist crowd?
Mr Trump is the first sitting US President to attend a WEF since Bill Clinton in 2000.
The White House has just release excerpts of the speech:
- TRUMP TO TELL DAVOS LEADERS AMERICA `COMPETITIVE ONCE AGAIN'
- TRUMP TO TELL DAVOS U.S. WILL INSIST ON FAIR, RECIPROCAL TRADE
- TRUMP TO TELL DAVOS U.S. GROWTH WILL HELP DRIVE GLOBAL GROWTH
- TRUMP TO WARN DAVOS AGAINST IGNORING `VOICES OF THE FORGOTTEN'
Evercore ISI’s Terry Haines writes in a note that President Donald Trump’s speech is intended as both a message to world leaders about the changes the administration wants in global economic and trade systems, and as "a prominent kickoff" for Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
It seems like a full-er-est house for this speech...
With perfect irony, The WEF leader was booed at his own event for this introductory statement for Trump: "I’m aware that your strong leadership is open to misconceptions and biased interpretations."
