Trump to deliver polarising 'America First' speech on final day of Davos

President Donald Trump previous year ranted about nonexistent "no go" zones in London to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May - and she was forced to tell him that he was mistaken.

President Donald Trump is holding private meetings with world and business leaders ahead of his address Friday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "There's nothing that would happen to you that we won't be there to fight for you".

President Trump is in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum, the annual gathering of the wealthy and the well-intentioned.

"President Trump's economic agenda has unleashed the USA economy and we are growing", Cohn said. Trump declared his "love" for the United Kingdom while May said Brits stand "shoulder to shoulder" with Americans in a "really special relationship".

"I have tremendous respect for the prime minister and the job she's doing".


Last January, Trump announced to officially withdraw the U.S. from the Pacific trade deal in a largely symbolic move, as the U.S. Congress hadn't approved the deal yet. "In insulting the homeland of their ancestors - who had no say in the genocide and atrocity that was slavery - you have again violated the dignity of those with roots in Africa, wherever they are in the world", Mohale stated in his letter slamming Trump.

A poll a year ago found that 4% - roughly 2.5 million people - of Britain's population would protest a state visit by Trump. Earlier this month, he pulled out of a potential February trip for the opening of a new USA embassy in London.

The warm exchanges indicate a shift in mood since Trump sparked a diplomatic row by retweeting anti-Muslim propaganda videos made by Far Right group, Britain First. Alongside that, we are working for a good trade relationship in the future which will be to both of our benefits.

Currency traders and United States trading partners go a surprise in Davos this week whenPresident Trump's Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, appeared to back away from decades of support by his predecessors for a "strong dollar" policy by declaring "a weaker dollar is good for us".

Britain is keen to reinforce its "special relationship" with the United States as May's government prepares to leave the European Union, a divorce that will shape the country's standing in the world.
