When Donald Trump won the US election on 8 November last year, Americans who voted for him rejoiced. Others were ambivalent. And still others expressed alarm. But some were so concerned that they began considering their options for leaving the US altogether. Following one of the most divisive US elections in recent history, following on the heels of the similarly divisive vote for Brexit in the UK, we asked if people were making plans to leave the country because of the uncertainty and political climate. Our question was met with hundreds of compelling, sometimes polarising and often worried responses. These are some of the stories our readers told and reasons they gave for leaving, or postponing a move home.
Its easier for some people to leave the US than it is for others. Some said they were looking into dual citizenship status or ancestry that might help secure it. On November 9th I met with a lawyer and began the process of applying for residency in Spain. My wife is an EU citizen and I don't foresee our family returning to the US, wrote Jonathan Allen. It breaks my heart. Marie-Denise Jolie has firm and imminent plans. Moving to Canada on 8 Feb 2016. I am born and raised in [the] US, even served in [the] US Army, but have dual citizenship because one parent is Canadian. I never expected to move to Canada but I just can not stay here and I doubt I will be back other than short visits. I leave the US with a heavy heart and complete disgust. I am ashamed of the country I once served."
Fear of losing a way of life

Careful, Darlin’, not to be consumed by one of Mad Mo’s Canadian transplants!
Nobody cares........Just GO!
When are all of the Hollyweirdos going to leave? NEVER!
Ditto for all of these morons! OTOH, most of us wish that ALL of them would leave!
Go straight cross the border and never come back.

I know where you can buy the cake, ya fags

Why bother? Just enter illegally. I’m sure Spain will have no problem with that.
That was me, 21 Jan 2008 - 8 Nov 2016
Well, not totally, unlike this freak.
So get the #### out.
There’s a world full of countries to go to.
What are you bothering us for?
All these schmucks have to do is tell Spain they are gay muzzies.
You know, I was under a cloud for eight years.
It was my take that Obama was doing everything in his power to hobble the United States, eliminate it as a force for good in the world.
Did I hiss and moan protest riot threaten his life? Of course not. I put on my big boy pants and took him to task online at every opportunity.
I hoped that others would read what I wrote and identify with my thoughts and support change again, away from his policies.
So here we are when it’s the Left’s turn to man up, and to this point all we get is rioting, mobs, intimidation, physical threats, physical attacks, and assassination talk.
Now some folks may be leaving the nation. To those people I extend my sympathy.
Hey folks, is there anything I can do to help?
If you’re this far out there, we don’t need your ilk here.
The United States has a lot of patience, but when it comes to siding with our enemies, that patience runs out.
If I can be of help to anyone planning to leave, just let me know. I’ll come on over and help you pack.
I’m sorry you refuse to be one of us, but it’s your choice.
Enjoy that cold, and do not come back to get any medical procedures performed.
These brave people need our support. I got a twenty for an airline ticket for each of them if they promise to tear up their passports and never come back.
We watch you leave this country with unbridled joy,knowing that that's one less sniveling coward we have to worry about.
I am ashamed of the country I once served.
I served this country too,Comrade...and I've always been proud of it.
Good riddance to all of you freaks, and don’t let the door hit you in your sore arses!
