Despite concerns about emissions, Trump praised the USA as one of the world's largest producers of natural gas. "We are now NUMBER ONE in the Universe, by FAR!"

Fifty-three heads of state are on the guest list, including Trump, who is expected to address the gathering on January 21.

Prime Minister Borissov will also hold bilateral meetings during his visit to Davos. It's the 50th meeting of the World Economic Forum this year, which was launched by German economist Klaus Schwab.

The meetings will take place on the sidelines of the Davos conference, which this year is focusing heavily on climate emergency and social inequality.
