Airbnb host cancels Asian woman's reservation, telling her: 'It's why we have Trump [View all]

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.”

Dyne Suh, a 25-year-old law student from Riverside in California, was travelling to the ski resort of Big Bear Lake with her boyfriend and two friends. Miss Suh had contacted the Airbnb host prior to their arrival to confirm the booking.

But, three minutes from their destination, the host told Miss Suh they were no longer welcome. "And she said: 'One word says it all: Asian. It's why we have Trump.' " "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.
