President Donald Trump will address the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland later this month, the White House said Tuesday.
The surprise engagement, first reported by The New York Times, will place Trump among many of the world’s richest and most influential leaders in government, business and foreign policy.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump will use the forum to talk about his “America First” agenda.
“The President welcomes opportunities to advance his America First agenda with world leaders. At this year’s World Economic Forum, the President looks forward to promoting his policies to strengthen American businesses, American industries, and American workers,” Sanders said in a statement.
