"It's why we have Trump"

My three friends and I were three minutes away from our airbnb (we had braved a storm to get there) when the host cancelled on me, pointing out that I was Asian and "wanting something for nothing", saying "it's why we have trump", that she will "not be ordered by foreigners" and that I was acting like I was at a "BOGO buffet" for verifying what we had previously discussed: that I could bring two guests (she had said yes before, just needed to pay 50 per person per night) and my two tiny two-pound puppies (the ad said dogs considered case-by-case).

She was very disrespectful and I cried. Fortunately, there was a news crew (KTLA 5) covering the storm next to us where we parked, and the anchor interviewed me about the airbnb incident. Airbnb issued me a full refund and agreed to reimburse us for different accommodation. I have screencaps of the conversation.
