Donald Trump said that you will ban Muslims from entering US. What about other countries and religion? What do you think about visiting US after Donald Trump has been elected president. Will it affect?

I would not worry about it. There is a significant back down on his wild promises. Its all being diluted back to common sense, as IMO the Republican team wind him down.

don't even worry about it. Media lies and misleading statements taking things out of context to make him look so bad and crooked Hillary look good.  Donald Trump said in rallies he would ban Muslims etc until they can be vetted to know who they were. NZ here vets people coming in so no difference. If you are law abiding and proper documentation you wont have any trouble going in

Wouldn't have any bearing on my decision to visit or not.

He's pretty unlikely to ban me, and frankly I don't care who else he bans.

Wow! You sound like a republican puppet with statements like that.

Should be no issues at all.  Even if the rhetoric does translate into White House policy (doubtful), that will be sometime after January.

Why are we assuming that the OP is white, middle class, conservative, and planning a visit to Disneyland?

Why are you assuming what other people are assuming?

 

Come to think of it, why am I assuming what you are assuming other people are assuming?

 

Speaking for myself:  I wasn't assuming anything about the OP.

We are planning a visit to the USA on our way to UK and Europe next year, this will depend on the overall state of affairs there and globally. It is always prudent to assess risk etc when travelling away from our shaky paradise.

 Travelling to America is always risky.

I'd guess the two main risk factors will be a South American accent and brown skin.

In a recent 60 minutes interview after the election Trump is now saying he expects to deport and or jail 2-3 million people. That's an incredible number.

Depending on the level of Trump rhetoric ranting and threats that may come with that it could get quite dicy in places. By the way, Americans in America are on average not very good at accents.

Lock him up!

I would not suggest every Trump voter is a troglodyte (the charitable view would be that they just temporarily misplaced their brains), but the deplorables mentioned by Hillary are not known for nuanced thinking. If you are brown or (god forbid) black, you could be in for a rough ride if you happen to meet the wrong people in the wrong places. If you 'talk funny' or seem 'different' in any other way, you may also encounter brute suspicion and violent disapproval. If you are just walking down the street, you may become the victim of a demonstration for either side or maybe just for vanilla ice-cream. In America you never know. What we do know is that many who until now have tried to stay out of the light are emerging from the shadows and taking Trump's victory as a license to actually do what he has only talked about and trash everybody they disapprove of, which generally means everybody who doesn't look and think and talk like them. There are plenty of people in America who are not like this, of course, but as an outsider you will have more trouble knowing where the dangers lie. Local friends you trust are your best protection.

I'm pretty sure - despite denial - that most people did.  Perhaps it even starts with a quite reasonable assumption that few "people of colour" from NZ can afford USA holidays.

In contrast to Canada where having an accent can be beneficial
