DONALD TAKES DAVOS: Trump Tells WORLD LEADERS ‘US is Open For Business’
President Trump took his “America First” policy to the global stage this week, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland where he told business leaders and political big-shots that the United States was officially “open for business.”
The President touted the booming American economy and massive deregulations to top executives from across the globe, assuring them that his “America First” foreign policy doesn’t translate to “America 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,” Trump told the crowd.
“We are all stronger when free, sovereign nations cooperate toward shared goals and they cooperate toward shared dreams,” he added. “The world is witnessing the resurgence of a strong and prosperous America. There has never been a better time to hire, to build, to invest and to grow in the United States. America is open for business.”
The President’s comments come as dozens of major American corporations -such as AT&T, Walmart, Disney, American Airlines, Visa, Home Depot, and others- are raising wages and paying out big bonuses in the wake of the recently passed GOP tax cuts.
