Royal Jordanian airlines posted a sarcastic ad before President-elect Donald Trump won the election, encouraging customers to travel to the U.S.

“Just in case he wins … travel to the US while you’re still allowed to,” the ad reads.

Royal Jordanian is the flag-carrier airline of the Kingdom of Jordan, a key U.S. partner in the Middle East. Jordanian King Abdullah II joined the U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State and allowed the U.S. military to station rocket artillery systems in his territory. 

Jordan engaged in airstrikes against ISIS in 2015, but redirected its forces to the fight in Yemen after one of its pilots was shot down behind enemy lines and subsequently burned alive on video.

Abdullah offered his congratulations to Trump through a cable Wednesday, noting that he is looking forward to working with the president-elect to tackle various shared challenges.
