Barbra Streisand and Cher have both vowed in the past to move abroad if Donald Trump wins the presidency again, with Streisand stating on Stephen Colbert’s late-night show, “I will move. I can’t live in this country if he became president” and Cher telling The Guardian, “If he gets in, who knows? This time I will leave [the country].” However, both celebrities did not follow through with these promises, along with 18 others, including Samuel L. Jackson, Miley Ray Cyrus, Bryan Cranston, Whoopi Goldberg, George Lopez, and Chelsea Handler, who had also vowed to move abroad.
