After the announcement of Donald Trump's election as the next president of the United States, citizens all over the world are now baffled by one simple thought: What happens now?

Since the beginning of his presidential campaign in 2015, the new president-elect has made some outrageously insulting comments. His shocking statements, targeted mostly towards women and minorities, have caused global outrage, being tirelessly spread throughout various social media platforms and print media.

Although Trump's acceptance speech wasn't nearly as appalling as it was expected to be, with several world leaders and a majority of the world's population disgruntled by Trump's election, it is predicted that the United States will experience serious implications in terms of its economy, tourism, and international relations.

So then, what should we expect during this, the "Trump age"?

PRICE DROPS

Due to the drop in US dollar value immediately following Trump's election, finance experts began fearing what would be the worst economic crisis ever faced by the United States. However, the continuous direction of this decline is still not guaranteed.

The continuous drop of dollar rates could lead to cheaper oil prices, thus resulting in the lowering of travel rates. However, since the United States has long been an economic world leader, its financial decline could mean global economic instability.

CHEAPER AMERICAN HOLIDAYS

Due to the president-elect's poor choice of words against the female, LGBTQ+, and Muslim populations, tourism in the United States is expected to significantly drop. According to The Independent UK, over one million tourists from the UK have reconsidered choosing the United States as a travel destination since the election of Trump.

Furthermore, an online survey by Travelzoo indicated that a fifth of respondents would "definitely" not want to visit the United States under the Trump administration. The same survey also showed that a ninth of respondents would "probably" not want to travel to the US due to Trump's election.

The decline in tourism, partnered with the drop in travel rates would lead to the lowering of overall travel prices to the United States.

STRICTER IMMIGRATION AND VISA LAWS

With anti-illegal immigrant policies being one of Trump's strongest campaigns, it's easy to see why the world is predicting tighter border protection and stricter entry policies for the United States. While this remains to be a scary possibility, The Telegraph suggests that the passing of such laws by the president-elect could mean more difficulty when obtaining travel documents to the country.

Moreover, Trump has threatened to revoke all visas from any country that refuses to accept deported US illegal-immigrants. This could result in the cancellation of work, study, and tourist visas from countries such as Mexico, China, and The Philippines.


A PASSING FEAR?

Though Donald Trump has made some very heavy-bearing promises to the American people, many speculate that these are all just passing statements. Because of America's complex government system, many (if not most) of these plans will all fall to naught due to the country's executive, administrative, and legislative powers.

Still, it's not hard to see why many Americans are seriously considering just packing up and moving to other countries, such as Canada. In fact, the election of Trump resulted in the crashing of the Canadian immigration website, immediately following his victory.
