Trump lauds United States economy in Davos, dodges climate woes”

"Planting trees is good of course but it's nowhere near enough", Thunberg said.

As Breitbart News reported, Thunberg is one of 10 teenage activists at the annual globalist Davos event.

In a wide-ranging address pitched to appeal to the Davos crowd, touting the achievements of his administration despite his unorthodox approach, Trump picked up on some of the themes he voiced when he first addressed the WEF two years ago.

Ivanka Trump declined to answer questions from CNN about her father's impeachment trial, despite having several opportunities to do so.

Greta replied with a classic Twitter troll by changing her bio section to "A teenager working on her anger management problem".

Thunberg doubled down on her criticism that world and business leaders aren't taking the threat of climate change seriously.

"The habit of giving priority to [gross domestic product] over the well-being of citizens has got to stop", she said. "Now chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend".

"The science and voice of young people is not the center of the conversation, but it needs to be", told a panel session ahead of the official opening of the summit.

Despite the United States' withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, Trump stated that his administration is still "committed to conserving the majesty of God's creation and the natural beauty of our world", adding that "the United States has among the cleanest air and drinking water on earth and we are going to keep it that way".

"I am in the balanced clan", Legault told reporters when asked whom he prefers.

He attended the event despite his impeachment trial in the U.S. getting underway today.

Economist Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Laureate, criticised Mr Trump's speech.

The First Daughter indeed helped launch the Pledge to American Workers, an initiative calling on United States business to help train workers over several years.

Late past year, the Trump administration began pulling the United States out of the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement under which almost 200 nations set goals to lower emissions of heat-trapping gasses that lead to climate change. This year and for the first time on record, environmental risks occupy the group's top five long-term concerns, while corporate executives say they're increasingly concerned about environmental issues.

"To every business looking for a place to succeed - there is no better place than the U.S.".

He told a packed auditorium that trade deals struck this month with China and Mexico represented a model and took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he says are holding back the US economy.

Mr Trump also took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he believes are holding back the U.S. economy.
