Triumphant in Davos

As President Trump prepares to fly to the World Economic Forum, he is likely to feel vindicated coming to a club of elites that had long scorned him. (NYT)

NYT’s Dealbook yesterday

Trump will later today troll the global elite who scorned him by telling them that he won and their heroine Hilary and her sleaze bag of a husband (who is actually a lot sleazier than Trump) lost. And then he’ll lob a few verbal grenades into the crowd.

His officials are already in Davos playing the mood music about the grenades:

— “Wilbur Ross [Commerce Secretary] held firm on the Trump administration’s tough line on international trade.”;

— US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would welcome a weaker US$; and

— “Steven Mnuchin, Treasury secretary … absolutely expected to see an acceleration of trade measures during 2018, and said the administration was tightly co-ordinated in pursuing tougher trade policies.”
