Been there. Not on vacation though. Working there. Anything you wanna know about refugee camps in the Middle East? Ask away!

I've now realized the enormous mistake that I made voting for this guy. I'm so sorry.
Wow just wow! You may not care about other people or tourism but facts are facts! Tourism is a big part of the economy to the states and I can assure you many more people outside of the USA are thinking of not visiting the USA myself included (atleast until trump is out). If you haven't heard that will hurt your economy!

i hate bringing U2 discussion into FYM... but if there's any truth to this "foreigners will be asked for their social media, cell phone contacts, etc" bullshit... i mean honestly, would you still come here and be subjected to that nonsense? i know i wouldn't.

And if it is true that visitors may be required to hand their cell phones and social media info to costumes that is a clear invasion of privacy and you bet I will not step foot into the USA. And living only 15 minute drive from the USA I visit a lot and many of my vacations are to the USA! Which is a shame because I love the USA but if this is what will be required to get in, I want no part of it.

Exactly! You typed that as I was typing my last comment. I will never go there if I am forced to give my cell phone and social media info to team trump.

this exactly. i live less than 2 hours from the border and visit the states at least a couple times every year for various reasons. no way i'm crossing the border even once if this rule is put in place. i'll go to europe or mexico for vacation instead.

The direct contribution of Travel & Tourism to GDP was US$458.0bn (2.6% of total GDP) in 2014, and is forecast to rise by 3.0% in 2015, and to rise by 3.8% pa, from 2015-2025, to US$684.6bn (3.0% of total GDP) in 2025.
a moderate to major decline in international tourism to the United States would be roughly equivalent to a small recession.

after 9/11, when tourism suffered, the government had to issue $15 billion dollars in loans to keep the airline industry from going under, which would have put hundreds of thousands of people out of work.

but hey... who cares. we're making america great again. we'll be winning so much, nobody will notice.

Yeah, man! Let's make sure white, educated, "privileged" people stay far away from our country! Who needs em? The factory's gonna be coming back from China any day now and then we'll all be rich, just like Trump said!

Fuck school! Maga!

While Rome burns, Trump will be watching Finding Dory tomorrow.

No, that's really what he's doing.

And I'm sure that losing hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue from the tourism industry would go along swimmingly with a 20% import tax to pay for a $20 billion border wall, combined with an economic war against China. The numbers all add up so well!

I have to say that I also made a conscious decision a few weeks ago not to go to the US this year. I'll be seeing the U2 Joshua Tree 30 tour in Canada. I'm not even attempting to visit the US, not with all that's going on currently. And though still anecdotal, a friend of mine who has visited the US at least once every year for the past 20+ years has vowed not to visit as long as Trump is in power. As I said, this is just anecdotal and I'm not suggesting the two of us signal a clear trend. But people do skip the US with Trump doing all these things.

Remember how he likes to project?

The POTUS just uttered WW3 on Twitter. On his 8th day.

"A 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program and a 90-day ban on travel to the United States by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen"

....leading to hundreds of billions in overall tourism losses is quite pessimistic. Almost beyond speculation.

If and when we have government agents scrubbing every visitor's mobile and social media history, maybe you'll have something with those kind of numbers

From President Trump to Donald Dump. Vegas oddsmakers place 4 to 1 odds it'll take only six months.


Ha, does anyone think this could actually happen that quickly? Would President Pence, a past conversion therapy supporter, be better?

If he is impeached by a GOP led congress, which I don't think will happen but you never know, I wonder if that would anger Trump voters into turning against them. They likely wouldn't turn democrat though (well, some might in certain states), I'm not sure what they'd do.
