President brings âAmerica Firstâ to Davos
"Only by insisting on fair and reciprocal trade can we create a system that works not just for the United States but for all nations," the President said. He also made his pitch for investing in the U.S. economy. "America is open for business and we are competitive once again."
Yesterday, President Trump spent his first full day in Switzerland bolstering relationships with key allies. He met with British Prime Minister Theresa May before holding a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later in the afternoon.
While both meetings covered a range of issues, trade was an important common thread.
âWe continue to have that really special relationship between the UK and the United States, standing shoulder-to -shoulder because we're facing the same challenges across the world,â Prime Minister May told reporters after meeting with President Trump.
âMy thoughts and prayers are with the people whose lives and families were broken by the horrors of the Holocaust,â the First Lady said. âYet it is also through our shared humanity that we come together now in commemoration, strength, and love.â
The First Lady concluded her tour at the Hall of Remembrance, participating in a moment of silence by the Eternal Flame Memorial followed by a lighting of a candle at the Prayer Wall.
âMy heart is with you, and we remember.â
