Macron cancels Davos trip amid Yellow Vest issues

France's President Emmanuel Macron will not attend the 2019 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the president's office said on Friday.

The statement cited issues arising after Yellow Vest protests as the main reasons for the trip cancelation. The Elysee added that Macron will be hosting the second edition of the so-called Choose France forum with business leaders in Versailles on Jan 21.

United States President Donald Trump also decided not to attend the forum, as discussions regarding the federal government shutdown are still at a stalemate.
