“Shutdown” in the United States: trump may miss the forum in Davos

«Шатдаун» в США: Трамп рискует пропустить форум в Давосе

The White house is considering a scenario in which the US President Donald trump will not attend the world economic forum in Davos.

About it writes The Wall Street Journal, citing officials.

The question of the abolition of trump’s visit to Davos will be decided if the shutdown will end by January 22.

To this date, about 800 thousand civil servants will not get paid for 32 days. Also, most Federal agencies will continue to work only partially.

Recall from 22 December 2018, the work of the U.S. government partially suspended (shutdown) due to the fact that the Democrats in Congress refuse to pass a budget for the allocation of approximately five billion dollars to build a wall on the border with Mexico. January 8, trump has delivered his first televised address to the nation amid the shutdown.
