Trump ‘travel ban’ forecast to cost US $18bn

The rhetoric around president Trump’s US travel ban has damaged the US brand, experts say.

A study has forecast that president Trump’s travel ban could spark a 10.6 million decline in visitors to the US between this year and next.

Tourism Economics predicts the drop, which it expects to be nearly 7% of expected travellers, could cost the US economy $18 billion and 107,000 jobs.
