Washington DC [United States], Jan 23 (ANI): The first lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump, will not be joining President Donald Trump on his trip to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos this week.

According to the CNN, East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham confirmed the change of plans due to "scheduling and logistical issues."

Earlier, Grisham had reportedly informed the American TV station that Melania would be accompanying her husband, Donald Trump, to Davos.

However, Trump's own trip was in limbo until Monday due to the shutdown of the US government, which has now been resolved.

The White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had said that if the shutdown is resolved, President Trump would keep his promise to attend the global economic summit in Switzerland.

"The President's delegation will leave tomorrow, and the President will continue on his trip later in the week," she said, at an event marking the end of the shutdown. (ANI)
