Trump says United States has plan to contain coronavirus

As climate activists and protesters around the world call for more concerted worldwide action to address climate change and limiting carbon emissions, Trump argued that "to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse".

Mr Trump also took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he believes are holding back the U.S. economy.

President Trump's more than 30-minute long speech was devoted to highlighting the importance of the oil and gas industries, . with promises on climate change nowhere to be found.

"America is thriving. America is flourishing and yes, America is winning again like never before", Trump said before talking about a newly signed trade deal with China and a pending trade agreement with Mexico and Canada.

"Europe has been very, very tough to deal with", Trump told Kernen Wednesday.

"The world is on fire", she said. "I think they want it, they need it".

Mnuchin emphasised the USA was still involved in the OECD dialogue, but insisted that a digital tax was "discriminatory in nature".

France is also planning a digital tax and in response, Trump has threatened tariffs on French goods including wine.

"I wonder, what will you tell your children was the reason to fail and leave them facing the climate chaos you knowingly brought upon them?" "What happens if he reveals what I think about a certain leader and it's not very positive?" he said, adding that Pompeo testifying would also be a risk.

"The problem with John (Bolton) is that it's a national security problem", Trump said before returning to Washington, where opening arguments were set to begin in the historic proceedings.

"Today, I'm pleased to announce the United States will join one trillion trees initiative being launched here at the World Economic Forum".
