The leaders of France and Canada drew sharp contrasts with current U.S. energy and tax policy during their presentations to delegates at the World Economic Forum.
As President Trump arrives at the World Economic Forum in Davos, some of America’s closest allies are seeking to distance themselves from Trump’s policies.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada used his speech to delegates to make it clear Canada would not be following in America’s footsteps on corporate tax cuts. He had these words for large corporations:
“We’re in a new age of doing business. You need to give back.”
Meanwhile, President Emmanuel Macron of France, promised his country would entirely phase out coal power entirely in the coming years:
“We will close all our coal-fired power stations by 2021.”
Trump will address the World Economic Forum on Friday.
