"As more international travelers decide to skip the United States, 10 business associations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Restaurant Association, have created a travel industry group aimed at reversing the growing unpopularity of the U.S. as a vacation destination."

America Has a Foreign Tourist Problem

 

As more international travelers decide to skip the United States, 10 business associations, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Restaurant Association, have created a travel industry group aimed at reversing the growing unpopularity of the U.S. as a vacation destination.

 

 

6% decline, the only country with a greater decline is Turkey.

 

We're almost  beating Turkey to be the country with the greatest decline.

 

USA USA USA !

 

Maybe if we continue with Trump / Republican polices we can be # 1 at being last.

 


Too bad those who think lil' Donny's wall will keep them safe never consider that even with the decline the GOPers have caused in our tourist business, there's STILL 77.5MILLION foreigners getting in every year, only 9 of whom would be needed to restage 9/11, which had ZERO participants crossing the border with Mexico

 

Come on GOPers THINK! 77.5MILLION tourists who can afford a plane ticket vs couple thousand who need to walk in to look for a job??? Do you REALLY think anyone smart enough to arrange a serious terrorist attack can't get a job that will provied him with enough money to buy a passport and plane ticket?

 

The wall is nothing but a YUGE waste of tax dollars to make racists feel smugger (if that's possible after they got their very own POTUS)

It also seems to be reflected of the historic low regard the US now holds. Take a bow, snowflakes!

 


Many of the goofy and small minded far right would like to see America build a wall around itself and isolate us from the rest of the world. They revel in trump getting the rest of the world upset and disgusted with America. The ignorance and stupidity is abounding and disgusting.


Man learns from history that man learns nothing from history.
