Trump would be the first sitting USA president to attend the meeting of bankers, corporate chiefs, academics and investors since Bill Clinton in January 2000. Since becoming president, Trump has withdrawn from multinational trade agreements with Pacific Rim allies and Europeans and threatened to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement if talks with Mexico and Canada don't yield significant changes.
