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.
