1/11 Opposition to Trump’s visit to Davos grows

Edited by walterp on . Posted in News In Brief

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.
