    Trump is a highly successful businessman; as such, he knows how to talk to other businessmen.

      IF he is so bloody smart how come he has been bankrupted many, many times and as for being "Treated like a rock star"...according to my friends in Switzerland the press were just curious to see who he was and no protesters were allowed within 20 k of Davos also according to me friends in the Zurich Zeitung ( Zurich Newspaper) Trump was boo'd ,but Swiss news agencys over the years have had to censor some of their news so as not to embarrass polititical figures........Anti global trade and protectionism will turn the US back to the 1920,s .good luck boys you will need it.....

        You mean you don't know? Here...this is how Christiane Amanpour puts it:


        AMANPOUR: We have never, ever, ever seen — and we’ve been covering Davos for years — a trumpet orchestra, a trumpet ovation opening the speech of any leader, even the president of the United States.
        They greeted him with a freakin full orchestra and gave him a standing ovation for his opening speech! That's never been done before, according to Amanpour.

          People who study economics and finance love Republicans it's not a secret. The media thought these people would hate Trump because they're rich, but the media doesn't know its ass from a hole in the wall.

            This is the first time since the Clinton years that a US President has bothered to go.

            You might want to stop getting your info from Soros & Co. It was 4 times out of about a hundred.
            Give it a rest!

            Yes, keep drinking if that is what it takes.
            We don't want to get robbed anymore, and we finally have a President that feels the same way.
            Deal with it.

            Which makes you wonder why so many people still take the Media's word for everything, so long as it's always anti-Trump... don't it?

            Or not.
            I'm starting to think that any Republican would have been treated exactly the same way.
            Just like they are in Europe...

              As has been pointed out about Trump's Davos speech by now: Sure he sold the US to the crowd, and why not? But the important bits might actually be the things he fastidiously managed to not talk about — most importantly the increasingly protectionist US trade policy under Trump

                The beauty of such a policy is you can make exceptions.

                His entire policy is 'what's best for the USA'. We need to look out for #1.

                The liberals still have not grasped that the average US voter does not give two cents about the plight of anyone overseas (except maybe Israel), or any of the nonsense issues that the Dems love so dearly.

                They want better jobs, a bigger house, 2 cars, decent schools for their kids, etc.

                Trump gets that, which is why he won in 2016. And he is making it happen.
                Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  South Korea is about to slap some import taxes on their own. SK being one of the most trusted allies of the USA that is not exactly good news.

                    Trump mader it loud and clear....America first but not America alone. He made nice with British PM Theresa May, letting her know the US will fight for the Brits. They are not alone either. Another country we have strong ties with is Australia. Canada have slipped down the list since Trudeau became PM.

                      This is by far the best reception any US president have received at this economic forum. This is the forum's founder and chairman, Klaus Schwab...


                      “Mr. President, the role of the United States and your personal leadership is absolutely essential. For this reason, your message here has tremendous relevance. Of course, I’m aware that your strong leadership is open to misconceptions and biased interpretations,” said Schwab. When his words were met by hisses and faint boos from the audience, he continued, speaking louder, “so it is so essential for us in the room to listen directly to you.”

                      It was obvious, he was clearly siding with Trump against the biased and fake news media.

                        Well, he was certainly siding against the Progressives present who are Trump's biggest detractors.

                          He wasn't elected by the World Economic Forum though, but by the Kentucky Coalminers.

                          He'd be wise to remember that

                            America First......and what is he going to try to make us buy.....A new Chevy or Ford...better get rid of your BMW's, Audis and Benz and as for sticking up for the UK..forget it Theresa only if its good for the US....and as for Trudeau...well he at least remembered the rest of the world and did trade treatys unlike Trump who feels the world stops and starts at the US border..

                            You guys in the US get cheap oil from us but I guess you forget that and consider the oil yours....Boeing lost out , lumber tariffs, your own people pay for that as the extra cost to the builder gets passed on to the house owner/builder.....
