If Donald Trump wins the US presidential election, the country’s northern neighbor will face an influx of celebrity migration. The latest to join the flock that will flee to Canada is Lena Dunham, actor and creator of the HBO show “Girls.”

“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she told the host of the Matrix Awards Andy Cohen on Monday (April 25). ”I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

Asked about the comment by the hosts of Fox and Friends this morning, Donald Trump said: “Well, she’s a B-actor. You know, she has no, you know, no mojo.” He added: “I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that too–that would be a great, great thing for our country.” The morning show displayed a roster of celebrities who threatened to move to Canada as well, including Goldberg, Jon Stewart, and Cher. But the Republican frontrunner appeared most gleeful when he heard the name Rosie O’Donnell, a long-time enemy of his.

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