USA The tourism economy of the regions in USA like Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and now Northern California is rapidly declining as the natural disasters hit many parts which include the hurricanes and the wildfires and the recent nation’s tourism policy and political situations.
On the heels of the Donald Trump election, Las Vegas mass shooting, Muslim travel bans, an alt-right renaissance and a palpable negative shift in how United States of America is perceived globally, nations are issuing U.S. travel warnings and fanning fears of an America that no longer welcomes foreigners or succors its own citizens.
President Trump actively maligned the relation with Mexico, so they increasingly have decided to stay home this year. That means the United States is losing over a billion tourist dollars from Mexico. It is estimated for 2018 which are even worse.
In 2016, Nigeria advised its citizens against non-essential travel to the U.S. following the Trump travel ban. The United Kingdom scares its subjects by leading off its official foreign travel advice page with a warning that terrorists are very likely to carry out attacks in the USA.
Other countries like France, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and Germany warn their citizens about the recent gun violence in Las Vegas and give the impression that tourists are particularly vulnerable in the different parts of United States.
The Australian government also advised their travellers about the mass shootings in US which continue to occur in public places.
The flow of negative news add to the foreign visitors’ anxieties, which has already heightened by viewing endless video loops on national broadcasts of American police brutality, neo-Nazi marches, race riots and mass shootings.
Most recent mass shootings in Orlando or Las Vegas all feed the firmly established narrative of America as a wild and dangerous society where an innocent Australian bride can be shot by police or where club- and concertgoers get shot while dancing.
