US President Donald Trump in a statement on Thursday said he is cancelling his trip to the economic summit in Davos because the Democrats are being recalcitrant over border security.
'Because of the Democrats intransigence on Border Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my very important trip to Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum, ' the president tweeted from Air Force One on his way to Texas.
He was scheduled to leave January 21 to attend the World Economic Forum.
The Davos conference is scheduled to start on January 22, so Trump's announcement means the current government shutdown may continue to that date and beyond.
After Thursday, the current shutdown will be the longest in USA history. Trump and Democrats are at an impasse over funding for Trump's proposed wall at the southern border.
