    'I believe in America. As President of the United States, I will always put America First. Just like the leaders of other countries should put their countries first. But America First does not mean America alone,' Trump said, in an excerpt released by the White House.

    "Now is the perfect time to bring in your business, your jobs to the United States," said US President Donald Trump begins address at Davos, Switzerland at the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2018.

    Trump extolled the deregulations taken up by the US government and the tax bill that was recently passed in the US . He also stated that the US is open to mutually beneficial, bi-lateral agreements.

    Trump told his audience of politicians and leaders of industry, technology and finance that the United States was more attractive than ever to foreign investment under his year-old presidency.

    But he warned: "We cannot have free and open trade if some countries exploit the system at the expense of others.

    "We support free trade but it needs to be fair and it needs to be reciprocal. The United States will no longer turn a blind eye to unfair economic practices."
