“Due to the intransigence of the Democrats regarding border security and the importance of security for our country, I — with all due respect — cancel my very important trip to Davos,” he wrote on Twitter.
He also expressed his “warm wishes” and apologized to the WEF.
Because of the Democrats intransigence on Border Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my very important trip to Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. My warmest regards and apologies to the @WEF!

Earlier, Trump said that he would refuse to visit the forum in Davos if the US budget crisis continues, which is caused by the suspension of the government.
On December 22, the US government was partially suspended because Democrats and Republicans failed to agree on a budget.
According to democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, Trump has threatened congressmen to keep the shutdown ” for a long time, months, or even years.”
