Trump Official To Davos Attendees: ‘Leave’ If You Don’t Want To Listen To Trump, Should Be ‘Flattered’ By His Presence




Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said Wednesday that critics of President Donald Trump who don’t want to listen to his message during his trip to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland this week “can leave.”

“Davos should feel very flattered that he has chosen this as a forum,” Chao said at a panel discussion with other U.S. government officials, according to Politico. “Those who don’t want to listen to him can leave.”

Some members of the Republican Party have criticized the president for attending the event known to attract the so-called globalist given Trump’s populist economic rhetoric.




Chao defended his decision to attend, saying that Trump was doing so in order to engage world leaders on issues of economic importance, Politico reported.

The last U.S. president to attend the World Economic Forum was Bill Clinton, who attended in 2000.
