Donald Trump Would Welcome Lena Dunham’s Exit if He Wins U.S. Presidency
Donald Trump would love to wave goodbye to “B actor” Lena Dunham after she vowed to move abroad if he won the race to become the next U.S. president. The real estate mogul and reality TV star is the frontrunner to become the Republican Party nominee for the November election, and his candidacy has prompted a number of celebrities to publicly promise to leave the U.S. if he wins the race for the White House.
Girls creator and star Dunham, who has been campaigning for rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, doubled down on her pledge to relocate to Canada on Monday if Trump is elected to the top office. “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she said at the Matrix Awards in New York City. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.” Trump was quizzed about Dunham’s comments during a phone interview on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, and he made it clear he was a big fan of the idea. “She’s a B actor and has no mojo,” he declared, insisting the U.S. wouldn’t be missing anything with her departure. He then turned his attentions to outspoken Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg, who is known for her Democratic Party support. “I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that too – that would be a great, great thing for our country if she got out,” Trump continued, before learning his arch rival Rosie O’Donnell had also made similar remarks. “We’ll get rid of Rosie?” he asked. “Oh, I love it. Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country. I have to. Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.” Superstar Cher, girl group Fifth Harmony, Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am, and rocker Randy Blythe have all also declared their intentions to leave the U.S. if Trump succeeds current leader Barack Obama.
