Trump slump? International visitors to the USA down in administration's first year. In the first seven months of 2017, the USA had 41 million international visitors, a 4% decline from the same period in the previous year, according to the Commerce Department. The U.S. Travel Association estimates that translates into a loss of $4.6 billion spent in the U.S. Economy and 40,000 jobs. Many tourism officials are asking for an end to the political rhetoric by President Trump that they say is causing many travelers to choose destinations elsewhere. Ref. USAToday.
