Osinbajo Leaves for Davos after Attending George Weah's Swearing

Trump is expected to laud his tax plan in a speech on the final day of the WEF, which runs from January 23-26 under the banner "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World".

As for whether Trump would go to Davos if the government was still shut down, Sanders said: "I don't know that that's very likely".

In the face of charges of sexism, the forum this year has appointed seven female co-chairwomen, including Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, and Ginni Rometty, the CEO of IBM.

Trump will have a full day of meetings in Davos on Thursday and then deliver a keynote address to the forum on Friday before returning to the United States later that day.
