Donald Trump Jr. Tweeted A World Map That Made Absolutely No Sense

The map gave away disputed territories claimed by India, colored in bodies of water, and left Croatia blank.

Posted on November 3, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. ET

On Election Day, the president's son Donald Trump Jr. tweeted something that left the world scratching its collective head.

Okay, finally got around to making my electoral map prediction. #2020Election #VOTE

Is the whole world voting in the US election? Are India, China, Liberia, and Mexico voting for Biden? Is ANTARCTICA voting for Trump? Only Don Jr. knows!

Some people tried to make sense of it...

so if I understand this map correctly, and that's a big if, California, Mexico, New York, Cuba, Liberia, India (minus Kashmir), India, Sri Lanka, and China... are Democrat now?

...in their own way.

@ShehabKhan @realDonaldTrump I'd like to think it's the LIBERiA(L) thing. Other issues: -South Sudan isn't on it -Croatia is left blank (Melania is from neighbor Slovenia) -the Black Sea is shaded red -Sri Lanka isn't part of India -Cuba isn't the only communist country -it gives ALL of Kashmir to Pakistan..

And some people made fun of it.

The voting line in Antarctica right now. https://t.co/hciBkIV8OV

But some people in India got offended, because the map showed Jammu and Kashmir as belonging to Pakistan, India's archnemesis, which has claimed the disputed region as its own for decades. (The map also joined Sri Lanka, an independent island nation, to India.)

So much for the friendship with Trump Senior. Junior has placed India firmly with @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris though interestingly Jr. believes J&K & the NorthEast go against the rest of India & will vote Trump. Someone needs to take his colouring pencils away. https://t.co/AqVyX4ixdl

India without Jammu & Kashmir! 🤦‍♂️ Trump Junior needs Geography lessons to begin with! Is this really how Trump wants the Election Day to begin? Not surprised though! https://t.co/T5EflZphXV

But that's not the only part of the world it messed up.

LOL. Don even colored in the Black Sea, apparently thinking it's a physical country. https://t.co/Owm26Lljvr

Turns out that Don Jr. picked up the image from 4chan, a radicalized corner of the internet where the president's far-right supporters frequently hang out.

I know you'll all be shocked to learn that Don Jr snaked his map from an alt-right 4chan orc

In conclusion, Don Jr. may need some geography lessons.
