Trump’s childhood home has an Airbnb listing

0

President Trump’s childhood home in Queens, New York is available for rent at $725 per night, according to a listing on the online lodging marketplace.

“This is a unique and special opportunity to stay in the home of a sitting president,” the listing reads.

“In 1946, Donald Trump was born to Fred and Mary Trump, and brought home to Jamaica Estates,” it adds. “Here they lived, in a home built by Fred himself.”

“Not much has changed since the Trumps lived here, [and] the kitchen is original and the opulent furnishings represent the style and affluence in which the Trumps would have lived.”

Twitter users on Wednesday had a wide range of reactions to the listing, with some commenting upon its cost and others the home itself.

The Airbnb listing states Trump’s childhood home has five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, 15 beds and two sofa beds.

The ad also claims there is a “giant cut out of Donald in the Living Room, [and] he is a great companion for watching Fox News late into the night…”

The listing’s host, meanwhile, is named “Donald J Trump Childhood Home” and bears Airbnb’s “verified” tag.

The principal of Paramount Realty USA, which auctioned off the home for $2.14 million to an unnamed buyer in March, on Tuesday confirmed to Newsday that the post is legitimate.

“The operator of the Airbnb listing is someone I know and they contacted me to tell me what their plan is,” Misha Hagani said.

“I don’t know if I can comment on that,” Hagani added when asked if the property owner or the leaseholders created the listing.

“I do know who it is. Whether it’s the owner…or someone else…I just don’t know that the person wants to be identified as such.”

The New York Times reported in March that the house had sold for $2.14 million to a limited liability corporation called Trump Birth House.

The move reportedly allowed the buyer to refrain from disclosing their identity in public records about the purchase.
