    Citing Wall Fight, Trump Scraps Davos Trip


    Putting America first.
    Via NBC News:
    President Donald Trump on Thursday scrapped a planned trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, later this month, citing border security only hours after attributing a possible cancellation to the government shutdown.
    “Because of the Democrats intransigence on Border Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my very important trip,” Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday while on his way to visit the Texas side of the border. “My warmest regards and apologies to the @WEF!”

    Why would they? We can’t fire them. They avoid attention, plan their weekend, schedule vacation, their second job, their next position — some do this in the same position for more than a decade.
