Trump’s Childhood Home Is Available On Airbnb
President Donald Trump’s childhood home is now available for rent on Airbnb, according to a Gizmodo report published Wednesday.
The Queens, N.Y. residence contains 17 beds and 3.5 bathrooms, and can accommodate more than 16 people. Despite the ample amount of space, parties or events are not permitted.
The host of the space advertises the lodging as “a unique and special opportunity” to live in the former home of a sitting president.
“In 1946, Donald Trump was born to Fred and Mary Trump, and brought home to Jamaica Estates … Here they lived, in a home built by Fred himself,” a description of the listing reads. “Not much has been changed since the Trumps lived here, the kitchen is original and the opulent furnishings represent the style and affluence in which the Trumps would have lived.”
Along with free parking and an indoor fireplace, arguably the most appealing amenity is “a giant cut out” of Trump in the living room.
“He is a great companion for watching Fox News late into the night…” writes the author of the page.
There is no affiliation with Trump, the White House or The Trump Organization “in any way,” according to Airbnb.
It is unclear if the host will try to pick and choose based on perceived political affiliations, since an anti-Trump activist could conceivably try to defile the house in some way.
However, this could potentially lead to conflict, as owners forbidding certain people from staying at particular accommodations has recently become a hot button issue.
California regulators fined a woman $5,000 in July for refusing housing services to an Asian guest due to her race.
Airbnb, the online lodging service, itself refused housing to a white supremacist group that planned to attend a rally in Virginia.
