U.S. President Donald Trump joined several executives for dinner in Davos on Tuesday (January 21), in a meeting organised with the help of Trump’s adviser and daughter Ivanka Trump.
The dinner was attended by FIFA President Gianni Infantino as well as business leaders including Telecom equipment maker Ericsson’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Borje Ekholm and Sony Corporation CEO Kenichiro Yoshida.
Trump is expected to attend a breakfast meeting on Wednesday (January 22) with Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook and other business leaders, according to sources familiar with the situation.
After days of uncertainty over whether Trump would attend the meeting in Davos, considering his impeachment trial in the U.S. is underway, he landed in the Swiss Alps on Tuesday and took to the stage for a keynote address at the World Economic Forum (WEF) summit. At the same event two years ago, he urged companies to invest in America after passing the first tax cuts to encourage business spending.
