A day after President Trump reportedly referred to Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations as “shithole countries” in immigration discussions with lawmakers, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky took to Twitter to promote some home listings in those destinations.
2.7M guests from Airbnb decided that countries in Africa, El Salvador, and Haiti were beautiful enough to visit. When we embrace the world, we see its beauty.— Brian Chesky (@bchesky) January 12, 2018
Chesky went on to say that there are currently 75,000 hosts in those markets earning a combined $170 million. He then tweeted out some of the most beautiful Airbnb homes in those locales.
The Washington Post and New York Times reported on Friday that the president grew heated in immigration discussions with lawmakers when they proposed a bill that would protect immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” the news outlets reported Trump as saying.
“Why do we need more Haitians?” they also reported Trump as saying. “Take them out.”
Trump denied making the comments about Haitians.
Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
