Trump’s Davos Speech to Declare U.S. ‘Open for Business’

President Trump’s speech in Davos will declare that “America is open for business,” senior administration officials in the White House told reporters in a background briefing at the World Economic Forum on Friday. The president must reconcile his “America first” policy to the group of international elites at the summit, and he has reportedly chosen three themes: the U.S. is eager to trade with other countries; the U.S. is open for business; and America needs cooperation from the international community to combat terrorism and the North Korean nuclear threat. In a televised interview with CNBC, Trump also affirmed Friday that he favors free trade as long as it’s “reciprocal.” He said, “I’m a free trader, I’m a fair trader. I’m all kinds of trader.”
