The World Economic Forum's annual gathering of globalist political,
financial and cultural elitists is underway in Davos, Switzerland.
But the organization's
founder is planning an emergency Washington, D.C., meeting in 2017
worried elites worldwide to discuss
how to deal with President-elect
Donald J. Trump.

year to discuss issues raised during the president-elect's
campaign and the populist wave that swept him to victory, WEF
founder Klaus Schwab told Bloomberg Television on Sunday.
will explore U.S. investment and job-creation opportunities for
companies that participate in the forum, he said."
Klaus Schwab, who in 1971
founded the group that eventually became the
World Economic Forum which
hosts the annual retreat for business, political and cultural elites
in the Swiss Alps, told Bloomberg that the event in Washington, D.C.
- which was previously not planned - is going to be meant to address
globalist concerns with the rise of
populism as evidenced by the
election of Trump to the presidency.
natural that with the new administration we plan a major event
in the U.S. to see what are the implications of the new
president and how the business community could engage," Schwab
said, adding that in Davos in 2017 there are populists present
who the globalists plan to hear from to try to assuage a "silent
fear" of the masses.
become very emotionalized, this silent fear of what the
new world will bring," Schwab added.
populists here and we want to listen. We have to respond to
these individuals' fears and to offer solutions. It's not just
enough to listen; we have to provide answers and that's what
we're here for in Davos."
Schwab said that
the Davos gathering is not supposed to be about the glamorous
parties and receptions for the elites present, or about the
"outrageous excesses of life" exhibited by them there, but rather
his goal is to create a "global village" where in the words of
Morris and Schatzker,
can mull weighty issues facing the world without the
distractions of a large city."

very difficult questions," Schwab said.
solution will require a lot of effort and many steps in the
right direction. I am optimistic that in a new multi-polar world
we still have the notion of a joined and shared destiny."
In 2017, the "Party
of Davos" so to speak, the World Economic Forum's annual gathering
there in the Swiss Alps, is as
Breitbart News has previously reported
a gloomier event than usual.
Last year, the
world elites gathered in Davos were certain that British voters
wouldn't vote to Leave the European Union and that Donald J.
Trump would 'never' be elected president of the United States -
and that all these fears of populist uprisings around the world
would 'never' materialize.
But they were
wrong, and now Davos attendees are scrambling to try to
figure out why...
