Barbra Streisand says she will move to Australia or Canada if Trump wins


(JTA) — Barbra Streisand told Australian TV that she will move to Australia or Canada if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States.

Streisand, 74, who has endorsed Hillary Clinton and is a well-known Democratic Party supporter, made the threat to move during an interview Sunday aired on an Australian version of the “60 Minutes” newsmagazine.

“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country, if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” Streisand told Sydney journalist Michael Usher.

Usher told the iconic Jewish singer that she was “very welcome” to live in Australia.

Streisand called on Trump’s American supporters to “come back to sanity.”

The Clinton campaign announced over the weekend that Streisand will campaign this week with Clinton in New York City.

On the “Tonight Show” on Thursday night, Streisand sang a duet with host Jimmy Fallon impersonating Trump.

The pair sang a comedic rendition of “Anything You Can Do” that skewered many of Trump’s statements from the campaign trail, including his intention to build a wall along the Mexico-U.S. border.

Streisand is in the middle of a tour in support of her 35th album, a compendium of duets titled “Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.” She mocked Trump repeatedly during the tour’s first concert.
