Trump vows to skip Davos if US govt shutdown continues
President Donald Trump on Thursday said he will skip the annual international conference at Davos, Switzerland if a government shutdown caused by the row over his demand for a US-Mexico wall isn’t resolved.
Trump is planning to attend the Davos meeting in just under two weeks, but said, “if the shutdown continues, I won’t go.”
Swaths of the US government have already been without funding for three weeks while Trump rows with opposition Democrats over his demand for them to authorise construction of hundreds of miles of wall along the Mexican border.
