Frommers: US Tourism Down After Trump's Muslim Ban

Frommers is reporting that a "Trump Slump" in international travel is real. There is a large drop in tourism by international markets to the United States. 

"The prestigious Travel Weekly magazine (as close to an “official” travel publication as they come) has set the decline in foreign tourism at 6.8%. And the fall-off is not limited to Muslim travelers, but also extends to all incoming foreign tourists. Apparently, an attack on one group of tourists is regarded as an assault on all."

On the web, flight searches for trips heading to the U.S. out of all international locations was recently down by 17%.

Wonder if any of those Trump supporters will be affected? Something has to open their eyes.
