The foreign policies framed by the future president of America are set to “shake the rust off” America’s foreign policy he says. The President is bent on improving his relationship with Russia and China.
His approach to Muslims will be quite unfriendly, as he has set plans to eradicate “radical Islam” as he calls the Islamic states.
He felt that Europe and Asia that are being subjected to terror attacks should bear the burden of their own defense. He was once heard saying that he would convene summit meetings in Europe and Asia to overhaul NATO and rebalance nuclear security arrangements with Japan and South Korea.
He wishes to concentrate on nation building business and building stability in the world. Charter tours and travel booking companies said some tourists from Europe and Latin America — two big markets for Florida and Tampa Bay will vacation elsewhere if Trump is elected because they loathe his anti-immigrant policies and think he stokes an atmosphere of racial profiling and distrust of foreigners.
U.S. Travel Association board meeting in March, where Travel Weekly editor-in-chief Arnie Weissmann said that Trump could possibly derail the momentum U.S. tourism has enjoyed in recent years.
“The U.S. travel industry has spent millions between different associations, like Brand USA, to position the U.S. as a very welcoming destination,” Weissmann said. “Mr. Trump would work against that.”
During President Barack Obama’s tenure, Brand USA, an agency aimed at promoting international travel to the United States, launched in 2010 with the goal of attracting 100 million international tourists and $250 billion from them by 2021. Tourism boosters benefited from Obama’s effort to jump-start a 10-year visa program between the United States and China in 2014. Before that, only one-year visas were available.
Trump has very strong rules on immigration laws. His policies as a potential president call for a wall between the United States and Mexico, ending birthright citizenship and creating tougher penalties for overstaying a visa.
Some believe that the fortress mentality America created after 9/11 will return with his victory. Many tourists believe that they will not be in America after he becomes President.
Some Muslim students feel that now Trump will be president and it will dampen their chances of studying in America. Many families did cancel their plans to work and possibly live in the U.S. mainly due to concerns over hate crimes and racial profiling with apprehensions of Trump becoming president.
