A lot of liberal celebrities are not pleased with Donald Trump’s lead in the 2016 presidential race. In fact, many are promising to leave the United States if the Republican front-runner is elected. Trump has gotten wind of this, and seems to be having fun with the idea.

On a Tuesday episode of “Fox and Friends,” the hosts told Trump that stars such as comediennes Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donell and actress Lena Dunham said they would flee the country if he becomes president.

“We’ll get rid of Rosie? Oh, I love it. Now I have to get elected!” he said in a phone interview. “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.”

Here’s a list of celebrities who vow to leave the country if Trump is elected.

Eddie Griffin

On VladTV, comedian Eddie Griffin suggested that Trump’s attitude toward Mexican immigrants may hint at how he feels about Black people.

“If he wants to build a wall to keep Mexicans out, I know what the f— he feels about a n—s,” he said.

Griffin said he will move to Africa is Trump becomes leader of the free world.

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg takes issue with Trump’s comments on wanting to keep Mexican immigrants out of the country.

“That’s not the president I want. Find a way to make stuff work. Stop blaming everybody because all of this, as American citizens, this is our — we did all of this,” she said while co-hosing “The View.”

She added, “I don’t want it to be America. Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know.”

Goldberg’s fellow “The View” co-host, Raven-Symone, also revealed on the talk show that she would pack her bags and leave the U.S. if Trump is elected.

“My confession for this election is if any Republican gets [elected], I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family,”she said.

Rev. Al Sharpton

Civil rights activist Al Sharpton said if Trump wins the election, he’ll leave the U.S. before he’s forced to leave.

“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,” Sharpton said.

According to The Washington Examiner, Sharpton is hoping Marco Rubio will be the Republican nominee.

    Now I’m feeling a bit conflicted.

    I won’t miss any of them.
    BTW, way to fix Raven’s statement. She said that if a republican gets the nomination. Which is a freakin given.

    Trump is right, him being elected does have added incentive……a much needed enema for this country.

    Just hope Whoopie and Raven Symone move to Canada… so “The View” gets cancelled.

    They are all full of it. They won’t leave the easy ride in this country for one where they will actually have to pay their fair share of taxes.

    If Trump wins no need to worry. He’s so stupid and erratic he would be impeached.

  7. Ishmael on May 13, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    So all those idiots will leave if Trump becomes the President?
    So what’s the Down Side? Can we make them keep their word? Deport them if they try to renege ? Help them on their way with a boot in the backside?
    Hillary Clinton is the Best reason to vote for trump of course, but getting rid of this Garbage is a not to distant second.

    South Africa? Your people have already f***** that place up Samuel.

  10. Regent on May 26, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    It would be nice, but none of them will. They believe that making the
    threat will energize their fans to all go out and vote and demonstrate
    against Trump.
