White House considers canceling Trump Davos trip if shutdown continues

US President Donald Trump may abandon his plans to attend this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, if the deadlock with Democrats in Congress over the federal government shutdown continues, US media reported.

The White House is now weighing cancelling Trump’s trip to Davos this month to attend the annual forum if the government shutdown is not resolved by January 22, Sputnik reported citing The Wall Street Journal.

If Congress is not acting by then to approve federal funding, some 800,000 US government workers will have gone 32 days without a paycheck, and most federal agencies will have only limited operations, the Journal said.
