15 Celebrities Who Said They’d Move to Canada If Trump Won & Didn’t

Nobody thought Trump would win, me included.

And unfortunately these celebrities didn’t think he would win either, so they made a deal.

A deal they had to later refuse.

Because, hey, America still is pretty great despite Trump winning the White House.

So here are the celebrities who said they would leave the country if Donald Trump won the White House, and let it be a lesson the next time we have an election and people make claims about what they will or won’t do.

Net worth:

Schumer earned $17 million last year according to Forbes

What she said:

‘My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish. Because I will move to Spain or somewhere,’ comedian Schumer declared in a BBC News night interview in September.

Now she says:

‘First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest,’ she said. ‘Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser. Like the rest of us I am grieving today. My heart is in a million pieces. My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now.’

‘The minute you start pointing and saying that person is a rapist and a murderer, it pisses me off because I’ve been part of that when they just use a blanket statement to talk about black people or when they use a blanket statement to talk about white people or women or any other group. I don’t think that’s America. I don’t want it to be America. Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know. I can afford to go. I’ve always been an American, and this has always been my country and we’ve always been able to have discussions. And suddenly now it’s turning into, you know, not them, not them.’
