inside the hall where donald trump would deliver his speech the first u.s. president to do so since bill clinton two decades ago. and eventually has plenty of pomp trump arrived on stage. he didn't mince his words. as president of the united states i will always put america first just like the leaders of other countries should put their country first also but america first does not mean america alone when the united states grows so does the world in what's being viewed as a disguised reference to china the u.s. president demanded a reformed international trade system. we cannot have free and open trade if some countries exploit the system at the expense of others we

laying the groundwork to challenge his protectionist ideas without perhaps naming him without saying this is specifically something that trump is guilty of and trump took the same tack he criticized china essentially without mentioning the country by name for intellectual property theft for tipping the trade balance in their favor with unfair trade practices and he said that this must change that he firmly turned his back as we expected on multilateralism but the case was made earlier in the week by the french president emmanuelle mccoll and the german chancellor angela merkel who called for a stronger europe with the french president to money when michael certainly a merging the davos dogging here although the u.s. president certainly had the spotlight in it he proved that he still stands against everything that the davos globalists here hold dear.
