In January 2017, Airbnb announced that it would offer free accommodation to those affected by the travel restrictions placed on refugees and immigrants by Donald Trump. The US President signed an executive order banning immigrants and visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries from the US for 90 days. The home-sharing company said the move was ‘not right’ and urged people in need of housing to contact the brand’s CEO directly on Twitter.
