President Trump told political and business leaders from around the world that the United States is "open for business" during his highly anticipated speech at the annual global economic forum in Davos, Switzerland on Friday (January 26). He said to the audience, "now is the perfect time to bring your business, your jobs and your investments to the United States," thanks to historic tax cuts, and the elimination of many costly regulations.
Trump touted his America first agenda telling the assembled leaders "I am here today to represent the interests of the American People, and to affirm America’s friendship and partnership in building a better world." He explained that putting American interests first did not mean the United States was trying to go it alone.
I believe in America. As President of the United States, I will always put America First. Just like the leaders of other countries should put their countries first. But America First does not mean America alone.
According to The Hill, the audience "sat mostly silent as a more subdued Trump spoke and offered a smattering of applause when he finished his speech."
