President Trump plans to attend Davos gathering

President Trump attend the World Economic Forum in Davos 1012018

During his election campaign President Trump had railed against globalisation in favour or an "America first" agenda, labelling Hillary Clinton, as "a globalist".

This year's event will put Trump in the same room as numerous worldwide elites he attacked during his 2016 campaign.

It is rare for a USA president to attend the Davos gathering.

President Trump is expected to attend the annual World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland this year.

In 2017, Chinese president Xi Jinping defended the idea of globalism in his keynote speech after Trump was elected president of the United States on a national-economic platform.

Nvidia launches self-driving vehicle partnerships with Uber, Volkswagen
The Drive IX aims at helping developers build in auto AI assistants and also act as a hub for both internal and external sensors. Volkswagen announced that it will use Nvidia's Drive IX platform in some of its upcoming vehicles, including the I.D.

Administration spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was eager to attend the meeting of world leaders and business execs.

Ms Sanders rejected the notion that Mr Trump's attendance symbolised he was backing away from his message of economic nationalism.

Trump goes to Davos after backing out of a Pacific Rim trade agreement and repudiating the Paris Climate accord.

The annual meeting is scheduled to take place January 23-26, focused on the theme "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World". He is threatening to end the Nafta free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, issue trade sanctions against China and scrap the Iran nuclear deal. There's a randomness element that's hard to quantify.

The conference is still dominated by corporate executives, but the gathering also now attracts world leaders, some of whom use the venue as a way to hold less formal bilateral conversations.
