With his impeachment trial in the Senate about to go into high gear, U.S. President Donald Trump left Washington Monday, January 20, to travel to Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum.

READ MORE: Trump departed on Air Force One on Monday, the third anniversary of his inauguration as the 45th U.S. president.

In Davos on Tuesday morning, Trump is to give a speech and — before returning to Washington on Wednesday afternoon — meet on the sidelines of the conference separately with several world leaders.

On Trump's agenda, according to the White House, are talks with Iraqi President Barham Salih, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Swiss Confederation President Simonetta Sommaruga and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, as well as the president of the Kurdistan regional government, Nechirvan Barzani.

The 3,000 participants at the invitation-only annual event will be outnumbered by nearly 5,000 military personnel and police.
