Donald Trump may have built hotels, but that does not mean he will be a boon for the travel industry, says Jason Clampet, co-founder and head of content at travel specialist Skift. Clampet says the highly polarizing President will not necessarily keep foreign tourists from visiting the U.S. In his view, the strength of the dollar will be the major driver of inbound tourism, not politics. Finally, Clampet says the demand for private jet travel may come back, as Trump tends to favor glitz and luxury in his homes, hotels and golf courses.
