Larry Kudlow, the Reagan administration economist who also advised the Trump campaign, said business and political leaders gathering in Davos, Switzerland, this month will offer a warm welcome to President Donald Trump because of his pro-growth policies.

"I think the decision to go was a brilliant decision. He'll stand up on that world stage and talk about why the American economy is growing more rapidly with even more to come," Kudlow said to CNN.

The World Economic Forum each year brings together the world’s rich and powerful, including globalists who Trump has targeted for derision since the early days of his presidential campaign that promised to “Make America Great Again.” Trump criticized trade agreements, the Paris Climate accord and open borders for decimating the U.S. middle class and hollowing out the country’s manufacturing base.

His “America First” agenda won’t be well received, Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group, told Bloomberg News.

“Everything that Trump has done on a global stage is kind of anathema to what WEF stands for,” Bremmer said to the newswire. “There’s no question that the speech will not be well received in terms of substance.”

Kudlow said Trump's ability to get tax reform passed and roll back regulations will earn him a warm welcome. Global stock markets are hitting new records each passing day, effortlessly lining the pockets of the world's richest.

"He's compiled a very good record this year," Kudlow said. "I think they'll receive him quite well."

White House aides convinced Trump that Davos would be a more forgiving venue than the G-7 or G-20 summits, where he felt cornered at times by his global counterparts, CNN reported. Trump won’t be forced to sit through meetings where other leaders criticize him.

Stephen Moore, the economist who also advised the Trump campaign, was skeptical the Davos trip could be successful.

"It was an odd decision to me. Those are 500 of the intellectual bureaucratic elite. They're not Trump supporters," Moore told CNN. “I was disappointed that he's going to Davos because I think it's a lot of self-important people who have a totally different view of the world than he does."

Officials told CNN that Trump was unlikely to participate in sideline discussions where "real business"gets done at Davos. Trump doesn't drink alcohol, and many of the forum's social gatherings revolve around cocktails and food. 

The former White House spokesman and financier Anthony Scaramucci used to host a wine tasting party at Davos, and last year acted as a quasi-representative of the Trump administration.
