Donald Trump Joins Javanka at Davos 2020

Donald Trump Joins Javanka at Davos 2020

World leaders and the billionaires who own them are now gathered in Davos Switzerland at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. Even though the Davos golf season ended in October, US President Donald Trump has joined White House Lifestyle guru Ivanka Trump, her husband Secretary of Everthing Jared Kushner, and foreclosure king and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin at the high-powered global economics meeting. We expect the president to use the globalist event to address “America First” political supporters back home, contest his impeachment trial at a safe distance, and check out the specifics of the Swiss-US extradition treaty.

Mr. Trump’s attendence at Davos is expected to cost U.S taxpayers $3.4 million in addition to security costs, salaries, and the $2.2 million needed to fly Air Force One round-trip between the US and Zurich and the Marine One helicopter from Zurich to Davos and back.
