(CNN) — A South Alabama town’s mayor says he is raising money to buy bus tickets to Mexico for everyone promising to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president.

Tony Kennon, who is the mayor of Orange Beach, is now making rounds on social media.

He wants everyone who vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump became president to keep their promise and he has set up a GoFundMe account to help them out.

Kennon says,  “I want to raise ten million dollars to buy all the bus tickets we can find to send all the celebrities and athletes who don’t love this country to Tijuana, Mexico, for a better life.”

His account is called “Don’t Let the Screen Door Hit You” and it was born out of frustration over what he calls the “hypocrisy” of it all.

Reactions prove most people are behind him… but some aren’t as receptive.

“The responses mean nothing for me,” replies Kennon.  “I’m stating and standing for what I believe in and I don’t care what anybody thinks. But for the most part, it has been absolutely positive.”

“They need to apologize if they are going to stay in our country,” he adds.

Kennon says he hopes the post goes viral.
