    This isn't the fault of President Trump. The fault lies squarely at the feet of the gleeful Democrat *ssholes who made public something that was said in a closed meeting and then used it as a POLITICAL WEAPON.

    And then they'll be oh so mad and indignant when they DO NOT get invited to planning meetings.

    Davos attendees are quietly planning to walk out of Trump's speech

    Source: Quartz

    A growing number of Davos attendees are planning to walk out of US president Donald Trump’s speech at the World Economic Forum this Friday (Jan. 26), several conference-goers told Quartz, to protest his remarks about African countries earlier this month.

    -snip-

    Boycotting Trump’s Davos speech was first broached by Business Leadership South Africa CEO (and Davos attendee) Bonang Mohale in an open letter. Leaving Trump’s speech after he starts is probably more powerful than boycotting it entirely, some Davos attendees speculate.

    -snip-

    African CEOs said they’d like Trump to acknowledge that he said something inappropriate, and say he’s sorry. “We’re only looking for that, just to apologize” said Luvuyo Rani, the CEO of Silulo Ulutho Technologies, a South African internet company. There’s no way Trump realizes the “damage” he’s caused, said Rani, who added he wasn’t sure whether he’d attend the speech or not.

    Trump is scheduled to meet with Rwandan president Kagame, who is also chairman of the African Union, to “reaffirm the U.S.-Africa relationship and discuss shared priorities,” on Friday, the White House said. He speech is scheduled for the early afternoon.

    8. Let him begin his speech

    then just as he starts with the usual braggadocious bullshit, let there be a mass exodus take place. That would be way, way more powerful than boycotting.

    16. Might Trump chicken out and have an underling give the speech?

    Might Trump chicken out and have an underling give the speech?
    Sure. Just like he quit before the second debate, and the third debate, and then before the election, and then before he was inaugurated.

    And of course the idiots won't acknowledge that their god and savior The Black *ss was frequently belittled and encountered protests when he was abroad.

    Yawwwwwwwwwn! Trump will still be leading the United States when the Davos conference closes. And for another 3 or 7 years after that. They should think about how their 2 minutes of tantrum fits into those years of Trump leadership, but wisdom and politicians often are strangers.

    Based on what I've briefly heard, President Trump received a "rock star" greetings. So sorry, DUmmies

    Besides political leaders, bankers, billionaires and titans of industry there are some "celebrities" attending Davos. Why? You got me. Anyway. it includes Elton John, Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt and Angela Jolie. They may be planning some meaningless gesture which CNN can talk about for days. Pity that nobody watches CNN anymore except the loons.

    If anyone walked out, they were immediately replaced with 3-or-4 who couldn't get in because of the crowd. The attendees can't get enough of Trump. It's like selfie city. Yep, 'rock star' is a good term to describe it. Yet he's amazing at being 'just one of the guys' at the same time.

    Maybe FNN and MesSNBC will take footage of Trump doing a sound check and claim he spoke to an almost empty hall?
