President Donald Trump and a large number of top U.S. officials are headed to this year's World Economic Forum in what many see as a surprise from the "America First" administration.

Seven members of Trump's cabinet will attend, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Presidential senior adviser Jared Kushner is one of several advisers also scheduled to go.

Trump himself is also scheduled to travel to Davos, Switzerland, making him the first U.S. president to attend since Bill Clinton. If he does, he'll likely be accompanied by White House chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn.

There's been speculation on how Trump's political views will go over, though, since his isolationist and protectionist ideology is a polar opposite to the globalist thinking many Davosians share.

Some analysts are comparing Trump's large roster to that of Chinese President Xi Jinping at last year's forum.
