Trump and the impact on travel - News stories

Just 10 days ago we captured some headlines in Trump fallout - from Uber to F1.

Now, just as we did for Brexit - when we captured news stories predicting the impact of Brexit on travel, Brexit perspectives from travel bloggers - today we begin the same process of sharing stories about the impact of Trump-as-US-President on travel.

As the tone has changed in the days that followed the Trump win - from a sense of alarm during that first week, to more reflective analysis in the following week, we've organized these stories by date. For an interesting take on the reactions, start at the bottom, on November 9th, and go forward from there.
