The size of President Trump's crowds are never far from his mind. The most infamous example of his fixation was, of course, his insistence, days into the start of his Presidency, that his inaugural crowd was the largest in history, despite clear evidence that it was not. On Friday, January 26th, Trump was in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum. Trump commented to gathered reporters about the crowd during his Davos address:
It’s a crowd like they’ve never had before in Davos. Including all of you people like they’ve never had before so that’s good.
Trump then joked with Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, who was standing nearby:
I assume they’re here because of Klaus.
