This Week that Was: 27/1/2017
As the new US President Donald Trump ordered to start building the infamous wall on America’s border with Mexico, UK PM Theresa May is due to meet Trump on Friday, becoming the first world leader to meet with the new US President.
Trump’s executive order also includes plans to ban immigrants from seven Muslim countries from entering the US.
As Trump’s controversial orders have already become the most-talked about topic this week, the UK also made headlines when the Supreme Court ruled that Parliament has to vote on whether or not Theresa May’s government can start the Brexit process.
However, despite the backlash around the world, Trump could actually boost the US and world economy, according to finance experts at Davos 2017.
