Trump arrives for Davos Economic Forum

Trump, who pulled out of the meetings last year, is scheduled to meet with Iraqi President Barham Salih, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Swiss Confederation President Simonetta Sommaruga and Kurdistan Region President Nechirvan Barzani and others while there.

An appearance at Davos could provide some powerful optics of a president intent on doing his job as tumult swirls around him.

On Monday (January 20), Trump rejected the Democratic-led House of Representatives' impeachment charges and called for their immediate dismissal by the Republican-led Senate in a memo offering a legal and political case against his removal.

Trump, only the fourth of 45 American presidents to face the possibility of being ousted by impeachment, is charged with abusing the powers of his office by asking Ukraine to investigate a Democratic political rival, Joe Biden, and obstructing a congressional inquiry into his conduct.
