People love graphs, but lists can be just as telling. Some speak volumes.
As the cliché goes in televisions, we’re debuting a new segment called Very Interesting Lists (#VIL). And who better to start with than the unofficial but true president of USA, king of media audiences and “father of the vaccine” (his own words), Donald Trump?!
Here’s the guest list for Trump’s dinner party in Davos 2018

- President Trump is hosting a dinner for European business leaders in Davos, Switzerland.

- Notably absent from the guest list were Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.
President Donald Trump hosted a dinner for European business leaders on Thursday, his first night at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
At the start of the event, each of the guests described what his or her company does, and most of them complimented Trump on the passage of the GOP tax cut bill.
CNBC asked a White House spokesman why Mnuchin and Ross did not attend the event, and we will update this story with any response.
Here’s the guest list, according to the White House.
