Trump attended the forum last year, becoming just the second sitting U.S. president to do so. The U.S. does typically send a delegation of high-ranking officials.

The White House last year pushed back against criticism that the forum is a gathering for wealthy elites, arguing that it was an opportunity to tout American economic policies.

Trump is a billionaire, but campaigned in 2016 on a populist message aimed at winning over working-class voters.
