Airbnb host cancels Asian woman’s reservation at the last minute, telling her: ‘It’s why we have Trump’

Airbnb has banned a woman in California for listing her home on their site after she cancelled an Asian student’s booking, telling her: “This is why we have Trump.”

In the video, accompanied by text messages showing their conversation, she explains that she asked why their booking had been cancelled.

“And she said: ‘One word says it all: Asian. It’s why we have Trump.’ ”

Miss Suh, choking back tears, said she told the host that she would report her to Airbnb.

“We can’t have foreigners telling us what to do,” the host responded, according to Miss Suh.

Miss Suh, who emigrated from South Korea when she was three, said it shows the depth of racism in the US.

Writing on Facebook after the February incident, she pointed out it was far worse for people with darker skin or Muslims.
