French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday canceled his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos in late January, citing a busy schedule including debates launched in response to the Yellow Jackets protests.

The president’s office said Macron would also be holding the second edition of his own forum with business leaders in Versailles on January 21, Reuters reported.

On Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump said he will not be attending the event in Switzerland, citing the “safety of our nation” as he continues to push for funding for a wall on the southern border that led to a partial government shutdown.

“Because of the Democrats intransigence on Border Security and the great importance of Safety for our Nation, I am respectfully cancelling my very important trip to Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum,” the U.S. president wrote on Twitter. “My warmest regards and apologies to the @wef!”
