Donald Trump is set to appear on the international stage at next week's World Economic Forum in Switzerland, but if the past is any indication, the appearance may not be smooth sailing for the president.

Trump, who is already under immense political scrutiny at home as the Senate prepares for his impeachment trial, is likely to be one of the most influential and controversial world leaders to attend the annual event.

Greta Thunberg says world leaders are running out of time to tackle climate emergency

  Greta Thunberg says world leaders are running out of time to tackle climate emergency Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg told policymakers on Tuesday that time is running out to effectively tackle a climate emergency.Speaking during a panel session entitled "Forging a Sustainable Path Towards a Common Future," the 17-year-old cited the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report from 2018 as she delivered prepared remarks to a packed audience.

Trump won the election last night, taking Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and North Carolina, among anchor states like Florida and Texas. And in Michigan, the vote magically jumped up 138,000 for Biden in the middle of the night, without a single new vote for Trump . It’s rigged!

Other big names expected to attend include Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Democratic mega-donor George Soros, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg. Nearly 3,000 leaders from 118 countries are expected at the gathering, which will take place in Davos from January 21 to January 24.

This year, the forum's theme is "Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World" and will be largely focused on the intensifying global climate crisis. Trump's anti-environmental-regulation policies and his skepticism about global warming, which was seen in his pullout from the Paris climate accord, are likely to make him a target throughout the event.

As Trump lashes out at ‘prophets of doom’ in Davos, Greta Thunberg calls for climate action

  As Trump lashes out at ‘prophets of doom’ in Davos, Greta Thunberg calls for climate action The world, Thunberg said Tuesday, needs to “treat this crisis with the importance it deserves.” Thunberg’s remarks echoed her prior warning in Davos last year, when she told world leaders: “I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then I want you to act.” Your browser does not support this video require(["binding"], function (binding) { binding("wcVideoPlayer", "#video_player_e0758323-baae-4b1f-ada2-69822bf4a073").

World Economic Forum President Børge Brende confirmed as much to CNBC on Wednesday. He said that Trump will probably be questioned on his environmental beliefs during the event and that "we like frank conversations to move the world forward."

Next week will also be the first time that Trump will cross paths with Thunberg since the two squared off at the United Nations climate change summit last year. A video of the 16-year-old Swede staring directly at the president went viral. The moment happened just after Thunberg delivered an emotional speech slamming world leaders for their inaction on climate change.

While Trump hasn't seen Thunberg in person since the U.N. meeting, he has taken aim at the teenager on Twitter. In December, the president tweeted that "Greta must work on her anger management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!" Thunberg was quick to respond by using the remark for her new Twitter biography: "Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend."

Trump threatens Europe with fresh tariffs in Davos, deepening a rift with long-time U.S. allies

  Trump threatens Europe with fresh tariffs in Davos, deepening a rift with long-time U.S. allies President Trump renewed his threat to put hefty tariffs on European cars Tuesday at the World Economic Forum, promising hardball tactics if trade negotiations did not go his way. Just days after Trump scored big wins with China, Mexico, and Canada, the move highlights how Trump is quickly pivoting to make Europe the next front in his protectionist trade war. As part of this push on Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned that Italy and Britain could face U.S. tariffs if they pursue taxes on large digital companies like Facebook and Alphabet’s Google.

Greta Thunberg is the Swedish teenager who skipped school and inspired an international movement to fight climate change. Her father Svante Thunberg , is an actor, and is a descendant of Svante Arrhenius, a scientist who came up with a model of the greenhouse effect.

Weeks after the Twitter episode, Thunberg took a swipe at the president, saying that she "wouldn't have wasted my time" talking to Trump about the dangers posed by climate change if the two had had a chance to speak at the U.N. summit.

"Honestly, I don't think I would have said anything because obviously he's not listening to scientists and experts, so why would he listen to me?" she said.

Another Trump foe who will be at the Davos summit is Soros. The liberal billionaire investor has been one of the president's most prominent critics. Soros has created a new super PAC ahead of the 2020 election to support Democratic candidates and causes.

Zelenskiy's presence at the global forum could also put Trump in an awkward position. Trump's dealings with the Ukrainian leader are at the center of his impeachment trial. This will be the first time the two leaders have met since the House of Representatives voted to impeach him.

Congressional Democrats charge that the president abused his power by withholding nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine in exchange for a politically motivated probe by that nation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Trump has denied these charges, but a number of his associates have implicated him in the alleged scheme.

Trump says he would have loved to have seen Greta Thunberg speak

  Trump says he would have loved to have seen Greta Thunberg speak Trump says he would have loved to have seen Greta Thunberg speak while he was at Davos.Trump, who has sparred back and forth with the teenage climate activist, made the comments in a press briefing just before he was about to depart the annual World Economic Forum meeting in the Swiss ski resort.He noted that Thunberg "beat me out on Time magazine" - a reference to her winning the Time 'Person of the Year' award. He also said that she should shift her attention away from the United States to focus on "those dirtier places".

On top of Trump's scandals, experts at Eurasia Group and Control Risks have named "American politics" the biggest threat facing the world in 2020, according to a new CNN report.

Trump actually skipped the economic conference in 2019, citing concerns about the "safety of our nation" amid the partial government shutdown over border security. His cancellation cost U.S. taxpayers at least $3.2 million for car rentals and unused hotel rooms, according to Quartz.

But it seems as though the president has no qualms about traveling abroad during his impeachment trial, which is expected to begin January 21. White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters on Wednesday that Trump is "absolutely" comfortable about attending the forum.

"He is scheduled to go, and we're prepared to go, but we'll see what happens," Gidley said. He added that Trump is "focused on doing his job, focused on making the lives of all Americans better."
