Washington sources reported that President Donald Trump on Thursday cancelled the US delegation's trip to the annual international conference at Davos, saying the officials were needed in Washington to tackle the shutdown of the federal government. A statement from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said "Out of consideration for the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay and to ensure his team can assist as needed, President Trump has canceled his Delegation's trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland”.



Meanwhile Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had been due to head the five strong delegation that also included Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, US trade representative Robert Lighthizer and assistant to the president Chris Liddell. Furthermore the decision to scrap the Davos trip came after Trump hit his chief Democratic opponent Nancy Pelosi with a last minute cancellation of her plan to take an air force plane to Afghanistan, citing the four week old shutdown as a motive.

Moreover some 800,000 federal employees and many more government contractors are affected by the partial shutdown, triggered by Trump's refusal to sign off on funding for a host of departments. Perhaps this was in retaliation for the refusal of Democrats, who control the lower house of Congress, to approve his plans for a US Mexico border wall.
