Swiss petition against the presence of the Trump Davos Forum

A Swiss campaign and mobilization organization launched Wednesday an electronic petition designed to prevent US President Donald Trump from attending the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The petition, which was launched yesterday morning on the Campax website under the title “Trump .. You are not welcome, stay away from Davos!”, About 2500 signatures before the end of the day.

“We hope to have more signatures, we would be happy to have 10,000 or 30,000 signatures,” said Andreas Freimüller, president of Campax.

The White House confirmed Tuesday that the US president intends to participate in the next session of the World Economic Forum, which will be held in the Swiss resort of Davos between 22 and 26 January.

“The president welcomes the opportunity to present his plan (America First) to world leaders,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in an e-mail to the German news agency.

Tramp “looks forward to promoting its policies to strengthen US companies and industries and American workers,” she said.

Bill Clinton is the last US president to attend the forum in 2000.

Some US presidents have avoided attendance at the annual high-profile forum, fearing they may appear insufficiently aware of the economic issues raised during the event involving rulers and leaders of many countries.

“President Donald Trump is in complete harmony with racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, discrimination on the basis of sex, hatred of women, aggression, denial of climate change, human rights violations, and policies that increase poverty and inequality,” said Campax.

“We must resist a policy of inhumane encroachment. We want to put the world first and not America first,” said the organization, which denounces the US withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement.
