American tourism expected to take in about a 10 million fewer visitors = approx. $15 billion dollar hit over the next couple of years.

Even Canadians are skipping trips to the U.S. after Trump travel ban

From hostels to major hotel chains such as Marriott, tour group operators to outfits that cater to business travelers, the toll of Trump’s proposals on the nation’s tourism industry has been swift. Some say long-term damage has been done.

And it could be compounded by recent reports of Trump administration plans to implement “extreme vetting” of foreign travelers. Visitors — including those from allies such as France and Germany — could be pressed to turn over mobile phone contacts, social media passwords and financial records, according to a Wall Street Journal report.


Demand for flights to the United States has fallen in nearly every country since January, ­according to Hopper, a travel-booking app that analyzes more than 10 billion daily airfare price quotes to derive its data. Searches for U.S. flights from China and Iraq have dropped 40 percent since Trump’s inauguration, while demand in Ireland and New Zealand is down about 35 percent. (One exception: Russia, where searches for flights to the United States have surged 60 percent since January.)

Hey if it means more Canadians spending their money in Canada for leisure time vacations and activities, that's a good thing in my books! Thank you Mr. Trump. :thup: :wink:

It may very well be time in this crazy PC society and with the leftist loons/thugs who are masquerading as protesters to be finally put in their place.

As much fun as it is watching snowflakes get thumped its a shame its gotten this far but you can only poke the bear so many times before it wakes up.

The other question. Where are the cops? Berkley was a middle eastern type riot with the left throwing bricks and m80s into crowds. They should be crackin skulls.

A whopping 96 percent of Trump voters said they'd vote for him again. This after the leftist media trying to make it sound like his voters were having "buyers remorse". Also debunks the claim that it was those pesky Russians who were the cause of Crooked's loss. Another day another libbie myth debunked.

:thup: :thup:

I rarely watch the garbage network CNN any longer because it is so anti-Trump and they are all about ratings. That program has become a freaking reality gong show. The only difference is some of the anchors get paid in excess of $3M a year. Unbelievable! When I did tune in it was during the election campaign. I watched it almost daily. I loved whenever Kayleigh McEnany was one of the commentators. . She graduated from Harvard Law School with a Juris Doctor and Georgetown University School of Foreign Service with a BSFS in International Politics. She also studied politics and international relations at Oxford University, St. Edmund Hall. She is one smart, classy and lovely lady.

There was Kayleigh sitting amongst anti-Trumpsters who were foaming at their mouths and circling like ravenous vultures ready to pounce on anything positive or for that matter truthful she might say. Talk about a lamb amongst wolves. They constantly tried to shred Trump and anything positive she said to pieces often exaggerating the claims or outright misrepresenting them. Systematically she would crush these guys and some loud mouthed females like so many grapes. But she would always do it in a dignified manner. Gosh she is good.

They all pretty much laughed in her face saying that Trump had no chance and she was in some sort of alternate reality if she actually believed Trump even had a chance. Guess who got the last laugh?

A similar thing happened right here on our own forum at the same time. Day after day I would read the relentless drivel about what Trump was like all the while putting crooked Hillary on a pedestal. I would continually read the daily play by play about how poorly Trump was doing in the polls. One or two individuals were absolutely without a doubt convinced that there was no way Trump was going to win the election and that anyone who thought he might needed to give his head a shake. Guess what? Just like on the CNN network you could here a pin drop here too after the election results! You know..... that moment of deathly silence when someone accidentally pulled the pin from the live grenade and it takes a moment or two to process what has just happened.

Just like CNN, our resident CFL wannabee soothsayers went into Plan B mode. "Well, since we really dropped the ball on that one and the guy actually got elected we now must do everything possible to dis-credit him.

You would think there were more important issues to be concerned about in our own country. Issues like figuring out a way to make sure tinkerbell over in Ottawa doesn't get re-elected.

Now that he has won and is the President of the U.S. the boo birds need to find some way and saving face. They will look for anything they possibly can to discredit this guy in hopes of one day saying, " See...see... we were right!" Unbelievable. Sour grapes. Sore losers.

So you guys think it's good news for trump, who's at the lowest ever in popularity of all presidents at this stage , to have lost 4% of his confirmed supporters after 100 days?
