    Wow, that rubber mask of Trump is actually flattering! He'd probably look quite normal if he didn't spend all his time gurning, scowling or pouting.

    Put his face where it truly belongs, on a roll of toilet paper.

    Interesting to note that the US travel industry has lost $185 million since Trump took office..

    “There have been reports that flight inquiries from Europe to the US have been down 30 per cent since the inauguration of President Trump,” said a spokesperson.

    “While most of the world seems less interested in travelling to Trump’s America, according to Hopper there is one notable exception. In Russia, searches for US-bound flights have increased by a whopping 88 per cent.”

    Wonder if it progresses how it will affect tourism states that don't have a personal income tax like Florida because they make the difference from tourism...

    I was planning to visit the US this summer, but I think maybe I'll try South America instead.

    If Trump does nothing more then I'd expect the numbers to creep back up, but that is hardly likely.

    It's still a good visit depending where you go. Stay north of the Mason Dixon line. Might I add, I can't say enough good things about Massachusetts.....but I'm biased, I live there. Well, not at the present, that would be BsAs.
