Donald Trump: Lena Dunham and Whoopi Goldberg Should Leave the Country If I’m Elected

Is that a promise? Donald Trump has no problem with Lena Dunham and Whoopi Goldberg’s plan to leave the country if he becomes commander in chief. The Republican presidential frontrunner responded to the stars’ comments during Fox & Friends on Tuesday, April 26.

“Well, [Dunham’s] a B-actor and has no mojo,” Trump, 69, said, via Politico. “I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that too — that would be a great, great thing for our country if she got out.”

He boasted: “Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country. Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.”

Trump also name-dropped Rosie O’Donnell during the conversation. “We’ll get rid of Rosie [O’Donnell too],” he said. “Oh, I love it.” (The former Celebrity Apprentice host previously called O’Donnell, 54, a “fat pig” during a GOP debate in August 2015.)

Dunham and Goldberg have been vocal about the 2016 presidential election. On separate occasions, both women insisted that they would flee the U.S. if Trump won. Dunham made her relocation plans known while attending the Matrix Awards in NYC on Monday, April 25.

“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” the Girls star, 29, said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

Back in January, Goldberg, 60, also talked about possibly changing her home address. At the time, Goldberg was discussing Trump’s controversial comments about Mexicans and Muslims with her View cohosts. “Maybe it’s time for me to move. I can afford to go,” she said. “I’ve always been an American, and this has always been my country and we’ve always been able to have discussions. And suddenly now it’s turning into not them, not them.”
