The announcement that US President Trump is to visit Switzerland later this month to attend the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum has prompted mixed reactions. While a spokesman for the Swiss government said it was “delighted” that President Trump was coming to the mountain resort of Davos, centre-left politicians have made their displeasure clear. Meanwhile, the youth wing of the Social-Democratic Party SP is calling on the government to prevent the visit and has begun collecting signatures to a letter to the Federal Council, Blick reported. The Graubünden branch of the SP said in a statement that the US president was free to visit, but this did not mean he was welcome. A left-wing protest group, Campax, has also launched a petition against the visit and is planning to stage a demonstration, Blick said.
