US President Trump on Thursday announced that he is cancelling his trip later this month to the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland -- citing Democratic “intransigence” on border security amid a partial government shutdown, Fox News reported.

“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,” he tweeted. “My warmest regards and apologies to the @WEF!”

Trump attended the world meeting of global elites last year, the first time for an American president since 2000. He was expected to attend the Jan. 22-25 session again this year, likely offering a repeat of the “America First” message he took to Switzerland last year -- where he declared America “open for business” while warning he wanted to make trade with other nations “fair and reciprocal.”
