Donald Trump said America is "roaring back" as he hailed his "successful" first year in office – but his attack on the "fake" media brought boos as he addressed global elites in Davos.

The US President, giving the closing speech at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss ski resort, detailed his tax cut agenda and slashing of regulation as he spoke of a "resurgent" America.

As expected, Mr Trump delivered his "America First" message to the gathering of world leaders and elite business people.

But he insisted "America First does not mean America alone", as the US President outlined a willingness to sign "fair" trade deals and claimed the US is "open for business".

Sticking to the populist agenda that saw him elected to the White House, Mr Trump told international politicians they had an "obligation" to their country's workers and peoples – although his address was more restrained than his usual tub-thumping rallies.

On foreign policy, the ex-property tycoon stuck to hardline messages on North Korea, Iran and Islamic State.

He also included an attack on the "nasty" and "fake" media, prompting jeers from the audience – although it was unclear if they were directed at the US President or the assembled press.
