Trump departs Switzerland after Davos address

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — President Donald Trump has departed Switzerland after addressing an annual economic summit in the Swiss Alps.

He is due back at the White House late Friday.

Trump in a speech Friday at the World Economic Forum in Davos declared America open for business under his leadership. He also tried to assure the wary gathering that economic growth taking place in the U.S. under his “America first” agenda benefits the rest of the world.

Trump also held talks with the leaders of Britain, Israel, Switzerland and Rwanda during the summit, and had dinner with European business executives in the interest of encouraging them to invest in the U.S.

Next week, he delivers his first State of the Union address to the American public.
