no more trips to the US then - settled

I really enjoyed my last trip to the US, but if these new regulations are approved there is no chance in Hell I will ever set foot on US soil again.

Firstly, handing over passwords for social media and possibly banking to a third party!

They US government and private corporations have such a good record of keeping that information safe…

Think about the Ashley Madison breach and the suicides and blackmailing that happened after that.

Having that information in the hands of a foreign government who has already said if your not a US citizen then no rules apply.

Secondly, upwards of 6 months vetting for a 1 or 2 week trip.

This will totally gut the US tourism industry. An industry that was worth 1.47 trillion U.S. dollars to GDP in 2014 and was forecasted to contribute more than 2.5 trillion U.S. dollars by 2025.

How is this different from what the Germany and Russia did back in the day and what North Korea does now??
