Davos (Switzerland) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday told global business elite at the World Economic Forum in Davoc, Switzerland, that he would always put America first when it concerned trade.
“As President of the U.S., I will always put America first but America first does not mean America alone just like the leaders of other countries should put their countries first.
“When the U.S. grows, so does the world,” Trump told the business group.
He pledged to promote a fair and reciprocal trade system by negotiating for mutually-beneficial trade agreements.
“We cannot have free and open trade if some countries exploit the system at the expense of others; we support free trade but it needs to be fair and it needs to be reciprocal.
“The world is experiencing the resurgence of a strong and prosperous America.
“America is open for business and we are competitive once again,” Trump said. (Xinhua/NAN)
