China Money In The U.S. Has Nearly Evaporated, Tourist Numbers Collapse

China's direct investment (FDI) into the U.S. has collapsed since the election of Donald Trump. The numbers are staggering. FDI from China is now at its lowest level in 10 years. When Trump was elected in 2016, China FDI was a record smashing $46.5 billion, more than double the 2015 record breaking year of $15.3 billion. But after two and a half years with Trump in command, China investments here went from $29.7 billion in 2017 to $5.4 billion in 2018 to an estimated $3.5 billion this year, based on numbers from the Rhodium Group.

Then there is Chinese visitors to the U.S. Their numbers accounted for more than 40% of international arrivals on a six month rolling basis back in 2012. Today their numbers are down 3%, and are a much lower percentage of total international arrivals, based on data from the U.S. Office of Travel and Tourism Industries and translated by data analytics firm Macrobond.
