The unthinkable has happened; Donald Trump is our next president and with his accession to the White House comes nationwide protests, desires to secede and deep fears for the future. Across cities, countries and industries, people wait with bated breath as the overarching question of WHAT NEXT? hovers precariously above all our heads.

Will The Donald deliver on his promises for extreme immigration reform? Will a wall divide the USA from our Mexican neighbors? Will people be banned from entering the USA or tossed out of our borders? If the worldwide protests against the orange-faced, reality-star-turned-president are any indication, people aren’t happy. Within travel, top CEOs, editors and content creators are voicing their strong opinions at the US election results. Here’s how the travel industry is responding to Trump’s election win.
