Trump is scheduled to travel next week for the first participation by a US president to this meeting of world economic leaders in nearly two decades.

"President Trump looks forward to having a bilateral meeting with UK prime minister May in Davos next week to further strengthen the US–UK Special Relationship," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Sanders's statement in this regard indicated that there has been no change in Trump's Davos travel plan in view of a government shutdown beginning Saturday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also scheduled to attend the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos.

The two leaders are unlikely to have a meeting in Davos mainly because of their different days of attendance at the forum meeting.
