PRESIDENT Obama has admitted for the first time, that he and his familyÂ are â€œseriously consideringâ€ moving to Canada if Donald Trump is elected the 46th president of the United States. The news comes after Obama launched a scathing attack onÂ Trump,calling himâ€œwoefully unpreparedâ€ and â€œunfit to be presidentâ€.
The current U.S. presidentÂ was speaking to the White HouseÂ press corpsÂ when he expressedÂ hisÂ â€œdeep disappointmentâ€ with the republican partyâ€™sÂ nominee, leadingÂ him and theÂ First Lady to explore otherÂ options. â€œItâ€™s something Michelle, the kids and I have discussed as a potential solution to the Donald,â€ he said. â€œI have also spoken with Prime Minister Trudeau who outlined Canadaâ€™s generous immigration policy for wealthy individuals, so weâ€™ll see.â€
The Obamaâ€™sÂ had been expected to stay in Washington DC at least until daughter SashaÂ had graduated from high school. However in the event Trumpâ€™s elected,Obama told reportersÂ that his familyÂ will likely move directly to Canada. â€œTheir education system is clearly a lot better than ours anyway,â€ he accepted, shaking his head. â€œCanadians would never elect someone as buffoonish and incompetent as Donald Trump, at least outside Toronto.â€
However a potential â€œPresident Trumpâ€ is not the Obama familyâ€™s only reason for considering the move north of the border. According to the outgoing president, â€œCanada is clearly a much safer place for a black person, especially one whoâ€™s surrounded by police 24/7.â€
With himÂ seemingly ruling out a move to Toronto, ObamaÂ also dismissed suggestions he could be tempted to move to Vancouver. â€œHonestly, I donâ€™t really think we can afford to buy a placeÂ in Vancouver on a former U.S. presidentâ€™s salary.â€
What do you think about Obama moving to Canada?
