- The domain trumphotels.org was registered by an anonymous party to create satire targeting President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.
- The site features images of detained immigrants and links out to media stories featuring Trump’s comments on immigration policy.
The Trump Organisation has long been known to have bought up a slew of domain names associated with President Donald Trump and his family, including URLs containing the phrases “Donald Trump Sucks,” “Im Being Sued By The Donald,” “Ivanka Poker Champion,” and “Play With Donald.”
But there’s one domain name the company seems to have overlooked: the innocuous-sounding trumphotels.org.
This domain name was registered by an unnamed party sometime last week, according to Gizmodo, and now features a darkly satirical tribute to the Trump administration’s immigration policies, which have drawn widespread criticism and resulted in the separation of more than 2,000 immigrant families in recent months.
Visitors to trumphotels.org are greeted with a landing page featuring photos of immigrants detained behind chain-link fences and children wrapped in emergency blankets.
A few Trump quotes regarding immigration are also featured below the heading “Thoughts From Our Manager.”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best … They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”
A “Features and Services” on trumphotels.org features the sections “Handicap Accessibility,” “Se Habla Espanol,” and “Child Accommodations.” They featured links to videos or articles documenting instances in which Trump mocked, derided, or dismissed various types of people.
While there’s no clue regarding the identity of the site’s creator, a note at the bottom says trumphotels.org is intended solely for “entertainment, satirical, and political commentary purposes” and emphasises that the site has no connection with the president or his actual hotel business.
