17 Celebrities Who Promised to Leave the Country If Trump Won
It’s official, Donald Trump will be our next president. Many celebrities have already voiced their opinions on the result of the election. Only time will tell how this will affect things in the United States. During the months leading up to voting day, there were many people who said they would leave the country if Donald Trump won. Those people included a lot of American celebrities that we know and love. So which celebrities already have plans to leave? Here are 17 celebrities who promised to leave the country if Trump won.
1. Amy Schumer
The comedian has definitely made it no secret where she lies politically. When she began talking about the election in her stand-up routine, about 200 fans left a Tampa venue, according to Complex. Many of these fans must have been Trump supporters because her routine reportedly included her calling Trump an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” She also started making fun of the leaked tape that shows the future president talking to Billy Bush about grabbing women by the pu**y.
But was the comedian joking about moving? In an interview with New Music Express she said she would do a lot of things differently if Trump became president. “My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere,” she said. “It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.” Only time will tell if she will actually make the big move.
2. Jon Stewart
The former host of The Daily Show can move anywhere now that he left his talk show job. So where would he go? “I would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet,” he said according to People Magazine, “because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers.”
3. Miley Cyrus
While the results for the Republican Party nominee were being announced, the singer took to Instagram to talk about her plans to move. She also came up with a funny hashtag based on her hit song, “Party in the U.S.A.”
4. Keegan-Michael Key
The actor gave an interesting answer when asked if he thought immigrants might leave the country if Donald Trump was elected. “Geez, I might leave,” he replied jokingly according to TMZ. “It’s easy. It’s like ten minutes from Detroit and that’s where I’m from.”
5. Lena Dunham
The Girls creator made it clear that she was serious about leaving if Trump won, so she’s probably packing her bags now. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she told Andy Cohen. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.”
6. Samuel L. Jackson
The Quentin Tarantino movie star also said point blank that he would move and knows exactly where he wants to go. “If that motherf*cker becomes president I will move my black a** to South Africa,” he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
7. Chloë Sevigny
The Bloodline star is also not fond of Donald Trump and picked out an interesting place to move if he won. “Nova Scotia,” she answered in a video where people answered where they would move if Trump becomes president.
8. Bryan Cranston
The beloved Breaking Bad star might also be leaving the country. “I would definitely move,” he said according to Time. “… It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
9. George Lopez
Immigration has been a big topic during this presidential race so it makes sense that Lopez brought it up in his statement. “If he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration, we’ll all go back,” he told TMZ.
10. Amber Rose
The talk show host also found a Donald Trump presidency too much to bare. “Jesus Christ, I can’t even think about it!” she exclaimed. “I’m moving, I’m out! I can’t. And I am taking my son with me! I would be devastated, to be honest with you!”
11. Omari Hardwick
The Power star already has his new destination picked out. “I’ll move from Denver to Italy … If Donald Trump wins the presidency, I’m out,” he told The Wrap.
The actress already started making plans in case this would happen.”I already have my ticket,” she said on The View. “I literally bought my ticket, I swear.” She then joked by asking to be the show’s “Canadian correspondent” if she moves.

The icon is also not a fan of Trump, but her destination probably won’t work out well for her.
14. Whoopi Goldberg
Another host of The View talked about packing her bags! “I don’t think that’s America,” she said on the show. “I don’t want it to be America. Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know.”
15. Chelsea Handler
The talk show host never holds back, so you might be less surprised that she made this list. “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,” she revealed on Live! with Kelly and Michael.
16. Neve Campbell
“I’m terrified,” she said according to The Huffington Post. “It’s really scary. My biggest fear is that Trump will triumph.” When asked what she would do if he did win, she answered, “move back to Canada.”
17. Barbra Streisand
The icon also spoke out against Donald Trump. “He has no facts,” she said in an interview in Australia. “I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country, if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”
