Also, people may question global warming seeing so much snow and fortunately no global warming sceptic has been invited here, he said leaving the audience bursting with laughter.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said that globalization is facing a "major crisis" and that collective action is needed to confront the challenge. Mr Trump is due to speak to the conference on Friday to promote his "America first" policies which have seen the USA pull out of global treaties on trade and the environment. Emmanuel Macron is definitely one of the Davos star speakers.

"We think that shutting ourselves off, isolating ourselves, will not lead us into a good future".

Mr Macron has immersed himself for two days in the farmland of the hill country around Clermont-Ferrand after Laurent Wauquiez, the conservative opposition leader, called him "the most..."

"After Brexit 2016 and Trump 2016 things have changed and someone needs to take the leadership, and the fact that Macron and Merkel are doing that, I welcome it", Alexander Stubb, Finland's former prime minister and now vice president of the European Investment Bank, told AFP.

Macron also defended gender equality, another prominent topic at Davos this year and even more delicate in light of Trump's past remarks about women. It is his first speech at Davos since the election in May.

Trump's harsh stance on trade angered China and South Korea this week with new tariffs on solar panels and large washing machines.

"Trade wars are fought every single day. and unfortunately every single day there are various parties violating the rules and trying to take unfair advantage", Ross said. Numerous bosses were in Davos, too.

Macron continued by stating "Jerusalem will be the capital of both sides" and that the best way to move forward is to work fairly towards a peace process.

Macron is also taking an increasingly visible presence on the global stage, having traveled to China earlier in January and the United Kingdom last week.
