Davos paper attacks Trump’s views on trade

US President Donald Trump’s view of world trade will be challenged next week when he visits the World Economic Forum (WEF) at Davos, judging by a paper seen by Reuters on Wednesday that is aimed squarely at his "America First" stance. The "Strategic Brief on Misconceptions around Trade Balances" issued by the WEF’s network of trade experts did not mention Trump by name. But it took issue with his administration’s understanding of international commerce.
