People from across the world are hilariously arguing about which country should take in a Trump supporter

People in America are sitting at the edge of their seats.

Two days after the election, still no winner has been called, and Trump's team is doing everything in its power to challenge outcomes and push for mail-in ballots to avoid being counted in states where they look likely to favour Biden.

Meanwhile, the small matter of the Paris Accord resurfaced, as the US officially exited the 2015 climate agreement that Trump has long derided.

In case you understandably missed this piece of news, Joe Biden highlighted its significance, tweeting that his administration would re-join in 2021.

But one person was not into this idea.

An anonymous Twitter user replied, implying that he would leave the country if Biden won.

If the tweet sounds a bit too contrived to be true, it's because it may well be. The user went on to quote-tweet himself saying "this is so easy" and "it's funny to see the replies", suggesting he may have been trolling real Trump supporters with his over the top reaction.

Still, sarcastic intentions or not, people did take him seriously – the MAGA hat in the profile picture probably helped. And he's definitely not the first to suggest he'd leave the country if his favourite candidate didn't win.

Trump himself implied he'd consider it at a Georgia rally last month, where he said:

Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do? I’m going to say, I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics. I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know.

So it's understandable that some people may have taken it at face value. Serious or not, what ensued was an incredible exchange, in which people from countries around the world argued about who could possibly take in all the sad Trump supporters if Biden wins.

The instigator was a Mexican user, who said: "We do not want you here. We kindly pass you to the Canadians."

But the Canadians wanted no part of it either, kindly passing them down to the UK. As you can imagine, the UK was not vibing it, and suggested the Middle East instead... you see where this is going.

Countries and territories that tried to shirk responsibility for disgruntled MAGA folks included South Africa, Namibia, Florida, Antarctica, the Moon, Mars, the Sun, the neighbouring galaxies, a different multiverse, the Ultra Multiverse Beyond, the Pacific Ocean and finally... the Gulag.

We can only hope real Trump supporters will appreciate the irony of this Twitter user being rejected in this way, given that their president is such a big fan of walls and "strong borders".

What more could they really ask for?
