Trump Looks to Reach Deal on Dreamers

Trump will be the first American president to attend the Davos World Economic Forum since former President Bill Clinton.

President Trump plans to hobnob with some of the world's wealthiest and most powerful figures at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, The White House said Tuesday.

The president told the Wall Street Journal that he wants to be a "cheerleader" for the American economic success story in the first year of his administration.

"I don't think it's a hangout for globalists", Mnuchin said at the White House daily press briefing.

The former Goldman Sachs banker and Hollywood financier added "the economy that is good for the good for the world".

The U.S. typically sends a high-ranking delegation to the meeting of government and business leaders.

CVS Caremark Corp (NYSE:CVS): Institutional Investor Sentiment Down to 0.88
After $-3.59 actual EPS reported by Tesla, Inc. for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 4.46% negative EPS growth. It increased, as 19 investors sold PBH shares while 57 reduced holdings. 14 funds opened positions while 45 raised stakes.

The forum will take place from January 23 to January 26. Last year, before he was inaugurated, none of Trump's aides or Cabinet nominees attended the conference.

Considering President Donald Trump's platform of economic populism and fighting for the working class, his decision to attend has raised eyebrows.

"I assure you that the members of the Cabinet have no interest to go in there to rub elbows with anybody", Mnuchin said.

The meeting "aims to rededicate leaders from all walks of life to developing a shared narrative to improve the state of the world", it says.

Mnuchin said that Trump would talk about "reciprocal, free, and fair trade" at the summit. "And the president will talk a lot about his economic program and the impact on the global economy".
