It may turn out to be much worse as per the perspective of the American nation. Canadian newspapers have highly focused on this. It is not only about this particular time frame that the Canadian dollar turned out to remain low, there may be some other issues like cultural and political or related to climate which makes the USA look unattractive to the visitors.
World Newspapers compare this fact to the times of US election when the whole country was looking for something good for the nation. After the elections the travel plans for America is going to change the complete scenario of the nation.
Possible factors why people would avoid going to the USA:
One reason among many may be that, those who support Trump may boycott you over there. May be you will not be allowed to visit the country; this may be one form of aggressiveness. Many people are such who fear to go to the US, just by believing on the perceptions and the talks they have heard about people. As, such people are unaware of the policies implemented by trump. A world newspaper never relies on such gossips. They always cross check the facts and figures before publishing anything. This is what makes it authentic and worth reading.
