Eight cabinet members are accompanying President Trump to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, next week, including Sec. Rex Tillerson, DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen and Energy Sec. Rick Perry.

Why it matters: People who attend the Forum were pushed as "anathema to the nationalist, populist voters who put Trump in the White House" by former strategist Steve Bannon, Bloomberg reports. But Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who is leading the delegation, said Thursday that they will be pushing an America-first agenda.

  • Mnuchin said the Forum isn't a "hangout for globalists," and that the cabinet members have "no interest in going over there and rubbing elbows with anybody. ... This trip is all business."
  • Other members of the delegation include Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, Homeland Security adviser Thomas Bossert, and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

The full delegation, per the White House:

  • Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State
  • Wilbur Ross, Secretary of Commerce
  • Alex Acosta, Secretary of Labor
  • Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation
  • Rick Perry, Secretary of Energy
  • Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of Homeland Security
  • Robert Lighthizer, United States Trade Representative
  • Thomas Bossert, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism
  • Jared Kushner, Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor to the President
  • Mark Green, Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development
  • Scott Gottlieb, Commissioner of Food and Drugs

And some names the White House added: "In addition to the official delegation to the World Economic Forum, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, and Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn and other members of the White House staff will be traveling with the President when he heads to the forum later in the week."

With President Trump planning to nominate his third Supreme Court justice nominee by next week, key Republican senators are indicating their stance on replacing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just over six weeks out from Election Day.

The big picture: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) has vowed that "Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate." But Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) told Alaska Public Media, "I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election."
