Trump has taken celebrities’ threats to leave the country with little more than a shrug.

“Well, she’s a B-actor. And you know, has no mojo,” he said in April of Girls star Lena Dunham’s promise to leave the U.S. “You know, I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that too. That would be a great, great thing for our country.”
