President Trump is skipping out on the World Economic Forum in Switzerland this month due to the government shutdown.

In a tweet Thursday, the president said because Democrats continue to obstruct his administration’s efforts to secure the border, he is respectfully cancelling his upcoming trip to Davos.

He gave his deepest apologies to the world leaders expected to attend for his absence.

This comes as he continues to press for a deal with Democrat members of Congress, declaring that he would not sign a spending bill if it did not include border wall funding.
