Donald Trump has already won a number of states and is leading in plenty of others, including the Florida polls, as Super Tuesday 2016 approaches. Lots of prospective voters are speaking out against him and don’t feel he has any place even running for office. Many of those voices belong to celebrities, and here is a list of those who have publicly said they will leave the United States if Trump is elected president.
Rev. Al Sharpton is the latest to reveal that he is willing to leave the United States if Trump is elected president. Right now, he is giving his support to virtually anyone but Trump, yet he has been very complimentary of Marco Rubio in hopes he wins the Republican nomination, according to The Washington Examiner.
“If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone [else], while I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway.”
According to the NY Daily News, Raven Symone is making a lot more waves than she normally does on The View, and it is for her views on the next election. Symone is planning on moving to Canada if any Republican at all, including Trump, wins the presidency.
“I already have my ticket. I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
Jon Stewart, former host of the Daily Show, was one of the the first celebrities to throw his name out there. He had been asked if he’d considered returning to his old desk if Trump were to become president, but he shot that down in an instant and said that wasn’t happening.
Not only is Stewart prepared to leave the United States, but he’s intent on actually departing Earth if Trump gets into office. Stewart said that he would get in a rocket and think about going to another planet because this planet “has gone bonkers.”
Yes, he said it in a joking fashion and took it to another level, but not all celebrities and comedians are as lighthearted about it.
As Fox News reported near the end of January, another host on The View is ready to depart the United States should Donald Trump become president. Whoopi Goldberg believes that the country electing him means “it’s time” for her to move out.
“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.’ And you know, we have a lot of friends whose parents saw this already. They don’t want to relive this. They don’t want to relive this. So I need all the candidates to get it together. Get back to American values.”
There are many more that are joining the list of celebrities who just want nothing more to do with the United States if Donald Trump keeps winning states. He’s having a very strong showing in the primaries and caucuses, and he’s not showing any signs of slowing down.
Here is a list of other celebrities who have said they’d be willing to leave the United States if Donald Trump is elected president.
- Rosie O’Donnell
- Eddie Griffin
- Samuel L. Jackson
- Barry Diller
- Katie Hopkins
- Omari Hardwick
Cher has been more than vocal about her dislike and utter disdain for Donald Trump, whether he gets elected or not.

Right now, Donald Trump is leading considerably in the early Florida polls. Numerous political experts expect him to pull away on Super Tuesday, and move far enough in front of other Republican candidates that he won’t be able to be caught.
If Donald Trump does end up winning the presidency, then there could end up being a lot more controversy than there is now. One other thing to realize is that if Trump does end up in the White House, there will be a lot less celebrities in the United States as Al Sharpton, Samuel L. Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, and others may be gone.
