“Make dating great again,” reads the slogan from Maple Match, which promises to “make it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency.”

The matchmaking service has yet to launch, but nearly 5,000 people have already signed up, according to The Guardian.

Maple Match’s growing popularity comes on the heels of a recent poll that found one in four Americans would consider fleeing to Canada to get away from Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

“When this election came about and I started seeing Donald Trump and the rise of his candidacy I started getting concerned, just like anybody else,” Maple Match founder Joe Goldman told The Guardian. “I thought it might be interesting to try something like this out.”

This is not the first dating app to take advantage of the 2016 political climate in America.

Another site launched in February connects supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
