Trump pitches U.S. as 'open for business'

Trump was gunning for 3 percent or better - and crowing about his chances.

Democrats forced a government shutdown last weekend in attempt to expedite negotiations over the Dreamers, who are set to lose protection from deportation in March.

No one is thinking too much about their carbon footprint at the World Economic Forum, now underway in Davos, Switzerland. Instead it got Donald Trump the salesman. After all, this was a former reality television star who rode a wave of nationalist angst to the White House, blew up worldwide trade deals and inflamed allies with his coarse rhetoric.

January 27 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has again been caught on the wrong foot, this time at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

In a speech delivered in more measured tones than usual, the U.S. president attempted to reassure the crowd by saying his "America first" agenda did not mean "America alone".

For more on U.S. President Donald Trump's speech at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, CGTN's Asieh Namdar spoke with Afshin Molavi, a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

TRUMP: "The world's largest company, Apple, announced it plans to bring $245 billion in overseas profits home to America".

President Trump's speech in Davos was preceded by a lavish luncheon sponsored (of course) by the Saudis. "It wasn't until I became a politician that I realised how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be", Pointing into the audience, he added, "as the cameras start going off in the background". His comments prompted some audible boos from the audience, according to a pool reporter at the event.

The US ditched the Asia-Pacific trade pact a year ago, but the White House official confirmed it was still open to negotiation.

"I don't expect you'll hear a lot of details", he said. It also said it will continue to purchase goods and services from US suppliers at its current pace, which would equal $275 billion over five years.

But he swiftly turned to a theme of demanding tougher enforcement of trade rules, accusing unidentified countries of unfair practices, including stealing intellectual property and providing state aid to industry.

But in a shift, Trump said Friday he would be willing to negotiate with some Trans-Pacific Partnership countries "as a group" about a multi-nation trade pact - but only if "it is in the interest of all". But it also represented a victory for immigration hawks and a seismic shift for immigration policy in the USA, which has long centered on the question of how to stop illegal border crossings, not how to curb legal immigration. Trump says he welcomes that.

President Donald Trump is getting a muted response during his speech at the World Economic Forum.

After days of nearly feverish anticipation - indeed, in private, a few forum organizers complained of the media fixation over Trump's appearance - the speech was a bit of an anticlimax.

When Mr Trump took the stage, he received modest applause but some people kept their hands at their sides.

"BREAKING", she wrote. "The laundry list of salacious & flat-out false reporting about Mrs. Trump by tabloid publications & TV shows has seeped into "main stream media" reporting". "Your strong leadership is open to misconceptions and biased interpretations", he said.

The contempt was returned in spades by Mr Trump during his 2016 election campaign, when he assailed Wall Street and the Davos elite as the enemy of America's working class at a time of declining wages and job security almost a decade on from a global financial crisis.

During his speech, Mr Trump boasted how he had slashed regulation in the U.S, and claimed to have scrapped 22 pieces of old regulations for every new one imposed.
