List of Celebrities who Vowed to Leave U.S. if Trump was Elected

Now that Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States of America, are celebrities going to make good on their promise to leave the country?

Here is a list of some of the celebs who claimed they would move out of the U.S. if Donald Trump were to be President elect.


Bryan Cranston: would “definitely move” if Trump won. “Absolutely, I would definitely move,” the “Breaking Bad” star said on “The Bestseller Experiment” podcast. “It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

Samuel L. Jackson: “If that motherf—er becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa,”

Lena Dunham: “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver.”

Neve Campbell: vowed to move back home to Canada.


Cher: If Trump gets elected, “I’m moving to Jupiter.”

Miley Cyrus: “I am moving if he is president,” “I don’t say things I don’t mean!”

Barbara Streisand: “I’m either coming to your country if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”


Amy Schumer: “My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish, because I will move to Spain or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s just too crazy.”

Chelsea Handler: “I did buy a house in another country just in case,” “So all these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t — I actually will leave that country.”

Jon Stewart: would consider “getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers”

Whoopi Goldberg: “maybe it’s time for me to move, you know. I can afford to go.”

Keegan-Michael Key: said he would flee north to Canada. “It’s like, 10 minutes from Detroit,” “That’s where I’m from; my mom lives there. It’d make her happy too.”

Political Figures

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joked in an interview with The New York Times in July that it’d be time to move to New Zealand if Trump were to win.

“Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,” she said quoting her husband who died in 2010. “I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

Ginsburg later apologized for her comments, calling them “ill-advised.”

Civil rights activist Al Sharpton told a reporter earlier this year that he’s “reserving my ticket out of here if [Trump] wins.”
