“America in the first place does not mean America alone, said White house senior adviser for Economics, Gary Kohn, who accompanies trump. – When we grow, the world grows. When the world grows, we grow. We are part of it. We are part of the global economy. And the President believes it.”

Trump will be the first in 20 years a U.S. President, who will attend the forum in Davos. Participation in the forum will give him the opportunity to talk with predstavitelyami of the very elite “globalists”, which he sharply criticized during the election campaign of 2016.
In addition to meetings with world leaders trump will also give a small dinner for the representatives of European business circles on Thursday evening.
“The dinner participants run companies that have significant presence in the United States. They invest in our economy, we want them to continue to invest and encouraged others to join them,” said Kon.
White house adviser on national security Herbert McMaster said at the meeting with Mei trump will discuss North Korea, civil war in Syria and the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, which led to the lifting of sanctions against Iran, and from where trump has promised to quit if it is not amended.

Earlier this month, he walked away from a potential visit in February to participate in the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in London.
Trump will have his first meeting with Netanyahu after the decision on the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which led to increased tensions in U.S. relations with some Arab leaders.
McMaster said that the meeting with Netanyahu trump “will once again declare America’s steadfast commitment to Israel and efforts to reduce Iran’s influence in the middle East and the search for lasting peace”.
