    The association's study is based on bookings done by companies in the U.S. but reflects travel in both directions. The group is collecting data from European companies on travel to the U.S., McCormick said.

    "I wouldn't be surprised (based on my biased opinion) if we saw ultimately a similar or worse impact on travel coming into the United States," he said.

    The Euro is down 30% to the dollar and the Canadian dollar is dollar nearly 24% the peso is down 100% and your friends are silly sissies.

    TBH...with the World gone crazy, I would be hesitant to step foot out of the US right now. I definitely would not travel to Europe as it stands today. Trump has managed to make the World hate the US and I am pretty sure Americans are not welcome anywhere right now. I adore Mexico...but with tensions that Trump has created, I would even be hesitant to vacation there currently.

    Can't deal with the truth, so you have to make things up.

    Now you're insulting my friends? Off you go to ignore. If you can ever deal with the truth and admit you've made a mistake, let someone know- maybe I'll take you off the list. Until then, you're not worth my time. I don't waste my energy on people like you.

    My friends who canceled their trip here asked me to go up there to visit. I have a feeling crossing the border into Canada will be a lot more difficult than usual.

    The reason to fear for your safety in Europe is because of terrorists mixed in with the millions of refugees there because of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's bad foreign policy decisions in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemem, and most ever else.

    Mexico is safer than it has been in a decade.

    It has nothing to do with the Trump ban. It has a lot more to do with the strong dollar, which makes the cost of visiting higher than it has ever been. Looking at the big picture international tourism isn't even 0.1% of the economy.
    What color is the sky in your world?
