  • President Trump Just Cancelled His Trip to Davos Because of the Shutdown

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.

The partial United States government shutdown is in its 20th day, with no sign of an agreement.

Trump walked out of a meeting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) on Wednesday, calling it a "waste of time" because the Democrats were not willing to negotiate.

China's Vice President Wang Qishan is also expected to attend, but it is not clear if there are any arrangements for a meeting between him and Trump during the annual gathering.

Trump traveled to Davos in 2018, delivering a speech on the restored American economy.
