New York Expects Fewer Foreign Tourists, Saying Trump Is to Blame

The city’s tourism marketing agency, NYC & Company, says that 300,000 fewer international travelers are expected to visit the city this year than in 2016. For the first time in seven years, New York City officials expect the number of foreign visitors to decrease, a drop they attribute to the protectionist policies and rhetoric of President Trump – saying that those moves are scaring off many of the visitors who have helped fuel the city’s robust growth since the last recession.
