Donald Trump has been known to call for some extreme policies if he's elected president:

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump called Monday for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

Should Muslim tourists visiting the US next year be worried about the consequences of the election? Many people plan their travels more than 6 months in advance and therefore this question is not just of theoretical value.

    He will not be in office for 2 more months, there is plenty of time to visit the country :) – Vince Nov 9 '16 at 10:18

    Speculative and opinion based at present. He's not even president yet. Closing. – Mark Mayo Nov 9 '16 at 10:53
  • Apparently the new President promised to expand Trump resort Cuba for special categories of tourist. The reviews on Google Maps are all very positive. – RedGrittyBrick Nov 9 '16 at 16:38

    I'm voting to re-open as we have a bit more information now. – Andrew Grimm Apr 27 '17 at 12:57

It's not possible to predict that at this point. Trump has been extremely vague on how this would be implemented in practice. He won't even be in in office for another two months. We don't even know if he'll actually implement it. For all we know, it could have just been a populist attention grabber for the election.

When he is actually sworn in and/or starts making concrete statements and/or policies regarding this, it will be possible to answer this more objectively. At this point, we can do nothing but speculate.
