Swiss president heads to DC for first time since 1992
The Swiss president, Ueli Maurer, is travelling to the United States today to meet Donald Trump. One of the main items on the agenda will be a free trade agreement.
The two were supposed to meet on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum’s meeting in Davos in January, but Trump cancelled due to the US government shutdown at the time.
It’s the first time a Swiss president will have visited a US president at the White House since 1992.
