U.S. relationship as strong as ever: British PM May

WEF chief Klaus Schwab. The world economy is forecast to grow 3.9% in 2018 while India is forecast to grow 7.4% this year according to IMF

They say it's encouraging them to invest in the U.S.

However, there have been ripples in British-US relations, as Trump recently canceled a trip to London amid strong opposition from the British public.

It was Trump's first meeting of a trip aimed at touting his economic agenda and luring foreign investment to the U.S.

A weak dollar would potentially boost US exporters but cause headaches for all other trading nations. "The time has come for America to act just like all the other countries represented in Davos". He will also call for trade imbalance corrections.

In the longer-term, he said, the USA currency's value will be determined by the underlying strength of the US economy.

Trump's address at Davos is also expected to prompt protests from outside the forum, with crowds of demonstrators expected to greet the president's arrival.

"I thought my comment on the dollar was actually quite clear yesterday. we are not concerned with where the dollar is in the short term, it is a very liquid market and we believe in free currencies", Mnuchin told reporters in Davos. She was paying respect to 6 million Jews lost in the Holocaust and millions of other victims of the Nazis. We have a great story to tell, couldn't be happier to be here.

Presidential scholar Joshua Sandman of the University of New Haven likens Trump's visit to the biblical story of Daniel in the Lion's Den.

The first lady had been scheduled to accompany Trump to the World Economic Forum.

President Donald Trump says the Palestinians must return to peace talks with Israel to receive US aid money.

New tariffs imposed this week that have angered China and South Korea, and big cuts to the U.S. corporate tax, are accentuating foreign concern that the United States is abandoning its role as protector of the global trade order.

You can change your mind on Brexit, top European Union official tells UK
In his speech, Tusk said Brexit is set to become a reality "unless there is a change of heart among our British friends". In a referendum on 23 June 2016, 51.9% of the participating United Kingdom electorate voted to leave the EU.

"Even though the Davos people are antithetical to his populist message, he wants to confront them and to establish the legitimacy of the American approach as he articulates it, which is to confront globalism and put American interests first", Sandman said in a phone interview. He said it was a "false rumor" and that he wanted to "correct it".

A year ago, the Davos spotlight was claimed by China's communist leader Xi Jinping, who took up the torch of global trade to the delight of the well-heeled audience then anxious about Trump's impending inauguration.

The meeting comes two weeks after Trump cancelled an official February visit to the United Kingdom, where it was expected he would open the new USA embassy in London. Trump is ready to play salesman at the Davos economic summit in the Swiss Alps.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar will be among those in attendance when the World Economic Forum begins in Davos today.

And other foreign leaders are drawing their own contrasts with the USA president.

Trump hosted May at the White House days after he took office.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, one of 10 Cabinet secretaries attending the gathering, endorsed a lower dollar, pushing the greenback to its lowest level in three years, according to the Bloomberg Dollar Index.

He has meetings with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday and Rwandan President Paul Kagame, current chairman of the African Union, and Swiss President Alain Berset on Friday.

"America first is not America alone", said White House senior economic adviser Gary Cohn, who is traveling with Trump.

Speaking at the Thursday morning news conference, Ross said: "People are using some predatory practices against us and we're not flinching from that". His decision to sign new tariffs boosting American manufacturers this week has prompted fresh concerns about his nationalist tendencies. He is expected to tout the booming economy and recent tax cut legislation.
