These Celebrities Promised to Leave the U.S. if Trump Is Elected President

Miley Cyrus announced her disapproval in an emotional Instagram post:

Amy Schumer, too, will depart the U.S. for a new home. “My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere,” Schumer told British magazine New Music Express. “It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.”

“I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet,” Chelsea Handler said, “I did buy a house in another country just in case, so all of these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t, I will leave the country.”

Lena Dunham has said she plans to move to Canada. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Samuel L. Jackson told the host, “If that mother***er becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa.”

Chloe Sevigny promises she’ll move to Novia Scotia, while Barbara Streisand says she’ll head for either Australia or Canada.

Al Sharpton“If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone, while I’m also reserving my ticket out of here if he wins.”

“I’m moving, I’m out!” singer Amber Rose told Us Weekly magazine. “And I am taking my son with me! I would be devastated, to be honest with you.”

Cher tweeted the following message:

Whoopi Goldberg, comedian Eddie Griffin, and actress Neve Campbell have all also suggested that it may be time to vacate the country if the Republican candidate is elected.

Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that a Trump win would necessitate moving to New Zealand.

Bryan Cranston told the hosts of the podcasts The Bestseller Experiment will join Dunham in Canada: “I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

George Lopez attacked Trump’s supposed racism and said “if he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration. We’ll all go back.”

Raven Symone, for her part, seems a little confused about how American politics work. On The View, Symone said she will leave the U.S. if a Republican “gets nominated.” “I already have my ticket. I literally bought my ticket, I swear,” she added. Presumably she meant if a Republican was elected president.

Meanwhile, actress Jennifer Lawrence has said that “if Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” but she hasn’t vowed to leave the U.S.
