If Donald Trump wins, what country would you flee to?
This might be one solution to the nation’s immigration problem: Donald Trump haters on Twitter say they will flee the country if he becomes president.
In our favorite social media analysis so far this year, the digital analytics firm Luminoso scoured 4.5 million Trump-related tweets from Aug. 7 through Sept. 9 and found about 4% of them were people promising to leave the country if Trump wins the White House.
Here are the top destinations in those 200,000 “intent to move” tweets:
- Mexico: 75,000
- General: 69,000 (“I’m moving if Trump is elected” but no location specified)
- Canada: 25,000
- United Kingdom: 11,000
- Australia: 6,000
- Alaska: 5,800
- France: 2,000
- Hawaii: 1,500
- Jamaica: 1,200
- Ireland: 1,100
- Sweden: 1,000
- Brazil: 1,000
Certainly the folks moving to Hawaii and Alaska may be surprised to arrive and discover that Trump is still their president because those places are actually part of the United States.

Our media is as corrupt as the Democratic Party and is working in collusion with them.
