Despite the narrative that France is being overrun with Muslims and Military Patrols, it still continues to the #1 tourist destination in the world, with tourists increasing by 8% in 2018 over 2017, and 7% from 2017 over 2016. Europe as a whole also saw an 8% increase. You may say, well, that's just because there are more people traveling as world population increases and places like China generate more tourists. While true, it is important to note that US tourism is down, with Spain poised to overtake the US as the second leading tourist destination. US share in world tourism was 12.9% in 2016, and has dropped to just 11.7% in 2018. Some blame Trump, others blame the strong dollar, and other blame the domestic terrorism/gun violence going on here, whatever it is, people are just coming to the US much less frequently than before, relatively speaking. That said, the US still rakes in more tourism dollars in total than anywhere else by huge margins - mostly because everything is more expensive here, I guess?
