eBay seller offer to marry anyone leaving US after Trump win

12 November 2016 - A Swedish man's eBay offer to marry anyone leaving US after Trump win is removed. eBay have reportedly removed a post from a Swedish man looking for quick cash by marrying an upset American leaving the country in the wake of Donald Trump's Tuesday election victory.

Gustav Hallén offered his hand in marriage and Swedish citizenship, all for a cool $50,000. He wrote that he was in "overall good physical health and a fine specimen," despite some "minor eye problems."

Hallén said he wanted to lighten the mood online. "It felt like a fun thing for my friends on Facebook; the feeling there was so gloomy I thought I could maybe take the problem on from another angle, with a lot of irony, and invite people to laugh a bit instead," he told The Local.

His offer continued, "Why not move to a better place, like Sweden? Open for all suggestions female, male and others."

The website apparently felt otherwise. Hallén told SBS eBay informed him: "You are not allowed to sell freedom, (and) you're not allowed to sell people."
