  • Kevin Kuehnert says Social Democrats should break a cycle of repeated tie-ups with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's party

A fawning female admirer grabbed Donald Trump's autograph while others longed to pelt him with fruit as the USA president Thursday strode enthusiastically into the Davos economic forum.

Trump said on foreign affairs, he and May had "the same ideas, the same ideals". Campax is a group of independent activists who say they are working toward "a fair and green economy and for a society that is founded on solidarity and compassion".

He said: "When I chose to come to Davos, I didn't think in terms of elitist or globalist, I thought in terms of lots of people that want to invest lots of money and they're all coming back to the United States, they're coming back to America".

Trump, never invited as a businessman, will be the first US president to attend Davos since Bill Clinton in 2000, giving him a chance to mingle with the same elite "globalists" he bashed in the 2016 election campaign.

Trump will cap off his Davos visit with a speech in which he is expected to unapologetically discuss his "America First" policy agenda.

Trump's meeting with May will come just weeks after he cancelled a trip to London to open the new U.S. Embassy, blaming the Obama administration for selling the old building in the city for "peanuts". His appearance is aimed at luring foreign investment to the US and highlighting his "America first" economic agenda, despite its seeming odds with a forum that celebrates global cooperation and free trade.

"Can we throw things?" asked one bystander, a middle-aged American woman in a purple jacket, peering from the staircase at the crowds awaiting Trump's arrival.

Many mentioned the corporate tax cuts that Trump pushed through the U.S. Congress late past year as a positive sign of growth and investment, according to a Reuters reporter who was present. "Keep your fingers crossed for me that we will have a new and stable government in Germany soon", she said.

A former banker, Macron is a darling of Davos - the antithesis to Trump.

With Kagame, Trump will likely try to turn a page on his reported derogatory comment about "shithole" African countries.

May said the "special relationship" between the USA and the United Kingdom continues.

"For right across the long sweep of history from the invention of electricity to advent of factory production, time and again initially disquieting innovations have delivered previously unthinkable advances and we have found the way to make those changes work for all our people", the PM will say.
