President Donald Trump, during his appearance at this week's World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, will present a case for including the United States in world trade while stressing that his call to put "America first" will be "better for the world," former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Wednesday.

"I think the big message here is that an America first strategy doesn't contradict a long-term global strategy and a long-term integration into the global system," Scaramucci told MSNBC's Ari Velshi during an interview in Davos. "At the end of the day, what the president stands for is helping middle class families and lower middle class families have more disposable income, which is greater aggregate demand and purchasing power for the global marketplace."

During his speech, Trump will explain that after the Second World War, global institutions have been built to make the world a more stable place, and the United States wants to be part of that.

"At the same time, because a lack of symmetry in trade deals over the 71 years, goods and services flow freely into the United States," said Scaramucci. "Some of our goods and services have been embargoed. We accepted that because we wanted to create a rising living standard across the world and greater global economic interdependence, which led to peace and prosperity."

However, he continued, that has hurt American working and middle class families, so Trump, in his speech, is "going to put America first, those families first, and it'll be better for the world."
