Following reports that President Donald Trump allegedly called Haiti, countries in Africa and El Salvador ‘s***hole countries’, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky posted three listings from those regions that showed they ‘were beautiful enough to visit.’

The final property listed in his posts was Nyumba Ya Madau, which is an ocean front villa in Malindi.

Costing £188 per night and rated 4.5/5, the property is described as “a Swahili style villa located in the most suggestive bay of Watamu, on a long white sandy beach and protected by the coral reef. You can enjoy long walks on the sand bar with the low tide and sailing and swimming with the high tide. It is the perfect place to relax and rest, ideal for families, couples and groups of friends.”

“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,” Chesky said on Twitter.
