Travelers from the Middle East to the U.S. have shown a decline of 5.77 percent after Donald Trump's restriction on travels into the country. Records of the Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) showed that fare tickets purchased by customers from the Middle East to the U.S. from January-March, 2017 totaled 383,154 fares but on the same period last year, records showed a total of 406,611 fares.

Travel Pulse reported that ARC Managing Director of Enterprise Information Chuck Thackston said that the new figures reflect some uncertainties. He said that travelers may opt for a different destination because of these.

Donald Trump has been called an isolationist because of his travel ban to the U.S. and his views on immigration. In one way or another, these have affected the travels to the U.S. especially from countries where the majority are Muslims.

Click Lancashire reported that President Trump will travel later this month to Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the Vatican in an effort to unite Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. White House officials said that the travel is purposely to fight "intolerance" and radical extremism."

Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia will be historic "by every measure", said Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister. The tour will include a visit to three major Abrahamic religious centers, with stops at the Vatican, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

King Salman's kingdom has two of the holiest sites in Islam and the president's visit to the country will banish the accusation of his being an Islamophobia. It will also win back the esteem of the Muslim people deeply affected by his Muslim ban which is part of his platform during his campaign.

Donald Trump will be in Brussels on May 25 to attend the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and will be in Sicily on May 26 to attend the Group of Seven summit.
