[Ed. – The MSM are spinning this as “Trump going to Davos because the anti-Davos Bannon is gone now.” Horse hockey. Economy and trade are his main things. Trump is going to Davos with the intention of owning Davos. Doesn’t mean he’ll succeed out of the gate, but that’s not the same thing as saying Trump is being a “globalist.” He’ll see engagement with Davos as a process of influencing and shaping Davos — not as the U.S. joining something ongoing that’s “owned” by others. He’ll be right that it’s silly for the U.S. to not be there, BTW. It’s possible to be there and not sell out.]
President Donald Trump plans to bring a big delegation with him to the small Swiss ski town of Davos in two weeks, including eight Cabinet members and some of the White House’s senior staff.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who will lead the administration’s economic delegation, on Thursday brushed aside portraits of the annual forum as a gathering of elite proponents of globalization, a characterization previously made some former Trump advisers. …
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will be part of the delegation, the White House announced. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and Labor Secretary Alex Acosta will also attend.
