Donald J. Trump’s winning effect has been extensive. But, one market that would be hugely affected would be the travel and tourism.

No, this is not something exaggerated; few surveys have proved that:

According to the reports from Telegraph survey, 34% of Britain citizen are reconsidering their decision of visiting the United States during Trump presidency. Travelzoo, a global Internet Media Company says Brits would “definitely” not consider the United States as getaway during the Trump presidency.

A survey by Irhal.com states that the United States has received over 1.3 million tourists from Middle East during 2015 and spent over $8.5 billion which shows Arab travelers spent 84 percent more than European tourists. This is going to get affected with Trump’s presidency, hitting USA economy hard.
