The White House is refusing to deny rumors that Barack Obama is planning to leave the United States if Donald Trump gets elected president.
Daily Mail reported that White House press secretary Josh Earnest was asked if Obama was planning to leave the country if Trump, a man he has said is unfit to be president, takes office. Earnest refused to answer the question, only saying that Obama was campaigning to ensure that no one would have to leave America because of a Trump presidency.
The rumors began swirling when Canadian satire site The Burrard Street Journal ran a story saying that Obama had announced plans to move to Canada if Trump wins. The story was called, “Obama Declares His Family Will Move To Canada If Trump Is Elected,” and carried a fictional statement from Obama which said, “It’s something Michelle, the kids and I have discussed as a potential solution to the Donald. I have also spoken with Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau who outlined Canada’s generous immigration policy for wealthy individuals, so we’ll see.”
Though this story was fake, it was picked up by various American newsrooms, including The Conservative Daily Post, who ran a story entitled, “Obama Just Said He’s Moving If Trump Is Elected, Sounds Good To Us!”
When asked about the rumors, Earnest said Obama would “spend a significant amount of time” campaigning for Clinton and her fellow Democrats.
“He’s working very hard to make sure that nobody has to leave the country as a result of an electoral outcome that the president doesn’t support,” Earnest added.
If Obama wants to leave the country when Trump gets elected, we will GLADLY help him back! SHARE this story if you want the Obamas OUT of the United States!
