This week we get to the bottom of the frightening drop in travel to the United States. Is this a Trump slump, outsized exchange rates, or something more ominous? We talk to Roger Dow, CEO of US Travel, on many issues affecting all components of the travel industry that generates $2.3 trillion in economic output.

First, we speak with Suraj Patel, President of the hotel ownership group Sun Group of Companies. He’s an American success story with parents that immigrated to the United States. He grew up working in hotels, owns hotels and is now running for New York's 12th Congressional District (parts of Manhattan and Queens).  Hear his story and the issues he stands for.
