Despite how many people said they were honestly leaving, I doubt that half of them left.

There's really no reliable stats on it right now seeing as emmigration numbers take time to be compiled and confirmed.

It's not like it matters, seeing as moving takes a fair bit of time as well. Shocking news, I know.

I don't remember the exact moment, but I'm sure I wasn't completely still

Just like all those people who said they were moving to Canada if Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012, no one moved and the same is for Donald Trump. There are always people who hate the President. It just so happens that due to social media and people who think the world owes them a living their outcries are being heard more and more and the media feeds on that and tries to ignite more and more. There was a lot of angry people saying things online and protesting Obama's re-election in 2012, but because the media is on Obama's side, it really wasn't reported.

Since Donald Trump won and it is no secret that the media doesn't like him and wanted Hillary Clinton to win, they are reporting on every single breath he makes. They are reporting on people protesting his win and how they want to move and everyone sees this and thinks that people really don't like Donald Trump, but they have no idea the exact same things occurred for Barack Obama in 2012.

Texas wanted to leave the union in 2012, now California wants to leave the union in 2016.

Actually, the Canadian immigration site was hammered and many considered the move but unfortunately didn't meet the qualifications or sponsorship goals.

"When a Canadian citizen obtained permanent residency through employment or though a family member, he/she can apply for naturalization five (5) years after becoming a permanent resident. If you were born in Canada but you have a U.S. citizen parent, you may also qualify for U.S. citizenship through naturalization."

And for a more detailed version of the process ...

It became too complex for many to follow up on it seems.

Two co-workers and a friend moved to different countries - their visas were approved before Trump's win (they wanted to make sure they had the option in case he did). My friend went to Europe and the co-workers went to Canada.

Some people left, most did not.

When Pierre Salinger, JFK's press secretary, said he would leave if Bush got elected he moved to his fabulous chateau in France, ate gourmet fare, and did not return during his lifetime. An honorable example for Lady Gaga, Chelsea Handler, Miley Cyrus, Cher and many others who were just saying that to ingratiate themselves to what they thought would be the new regime. I also noticed that while they objected to Trump's comments about Mexicans none of them, even when lying, said they planned to go to Mexico. And Mexico is nice, I have been to Mexico, I am sure some of the time, in some places, there is off the hook crime, but that is true of everywhere.

I technically did but I got the job way before November it just took that long to get the paperwork processed and visa application processed Chinese government can move a little slow. That's why I am not sure if it counts it was at least 6 months before the elections I just happen to leave a week before the elections
