Interest in traveling to the U.S. has dropped 17% since Trump’s inauguration, according to Hopper, an app for tracking flight price quotes. Hopper tracks between ten billion and fifteen billion airfare price searches every day.
Why this matters: International tourism to the U.S. is calculated as an export, so this could increase our trade deficit, which will irk Trump, according to Quartz. Right now, San Francisco, Baltimore, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles airports are the most affected. This is also an indication that there may be fewer tourists visiting restaurants, museums, and landmarks.
A notable exception: Travel interest from Russia is way up at 88%.
