Following Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s victory in the South Carolina primary Saturday, it’s becoming clearer and clearer who might represent the Republican Party for all the marbles.

With all this talk of building walls and public disagreements with Pope Francis, many are not warming up to the idea of Trump in the oval office.

Given that Kanye West is $53 million in debt right now, wanting him as the leader of your nation says a lot toward Trump.

But have no fear America, your neighbors to the north might have an answer for your concerns.

A radio host from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia has graciously offered the island as a potential home for Americans if Trump wins the presidential election.

Women can get abortions, Muslim people can roam freely and the only ‘walls’ are holding up the roofs of our extremely affordable houses. We are an island about the same size as the Hawaiian Big Island, on the East Coast of Canada. We always rank high on travel magazine lists of beautiful islands. But we are experiencing a bit of a population problem at the moment. We need people. We need you!

While many might view this as another comedic poke at the apocalyptic end results people have imagined if Trump were to be elected, the website has claimed to have received 35,000 visitors since the public offering.

Before people start prepping for life in Canada though, Trump has not yet won the Republican nomination. The next GOP debate will occur on Feb. 25 in Houston, Texas.
