It looks like Americans are starting to see the greater appeal of Canada. As U.S. President Donald Trump continues to set America ablaze with scandal and controversy, many people are fantasizing the ‘Amerexit’ of various U.S. states.
Such fantasies were intensified after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau posted a motivational video expressing his commitment and devotion to Canadians across the country:
Canadians, you’re at the heart of everything we do as a government. The work we’ve done this year — & the bills we’ve passed & made progress on — put you first. pic.twitter.com/kQKKIaMphv— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) June 20, 2018
Some Americans were apparently won over by Trudeau’s charm, and proceeded to express their burning desire to leave Trump’s America and join Canada.
Hawaii, California, Oregon and Washington were among the states proposed to become new provinces of Canada. Apart from some opposition from Trump supporters and Trudeau haters, most Americans and Canadians were receptive to the idea:
But we also need to add Hawaii to the new Canada territory, maybe Puerto Rico could join the new Canada as well!— Mary J. Berry 🌊 (@56jaytee) June 15, 2018
I would rather have California became a separate country. But I think the whole west coast plus Hawaii should join 🇨🇦 Canada.— Linda (@Neurosturgeon) June 13, 2018
We will definitely allow Hawaii to join Canada. https://t.co/pgKz05eVuy— Paul Hewitt (@PaulSHewittCA) June 11, 2018
It's too cold for me up there, but if Canada wants to let Hawaii join their country, I'm in favor of that at this point.— Barbara Walsh (@AtreiyaN7) June 10, 2018
Better Idea. New England and the west coast break off and join Canada. We’ll throw in with Nevada and Hawaii. You get beaches New York, Vegas, Silcon Valley and Vegas. We get sanity and healthcare. Deal?— robert Nunez (@robertN23002954) June 10, 2018
If California, Oregon, Washington & Hawaii band together & surrender to Canada, will you take us? I know you're not attacking so this would be a pre-emptive surrender. You'd get Amazon, Silicon Vally, Hollywood, beaches & sunshine & we'd get an ethical gov/healthcare #Please?— Kyra Davis (@_KyraDavis) June 20, 2018
In that case will you allow a Texas girl to move to one of your states? My family wants out ASAP!— 🌊Cyndy🌊🌊🇺🇸☘️🐶☮️ (@vegan_liberal) June 20, 2018
Id love hawaii to be canadian. Itd be so much cheaper to fly to lol— Atrøphy (@Promethium_61) June 21, 2018
Sure just dump Amazon and implement SafeX and you have a good deal!!!— Francesco (@fsacco10) June 20, 2018
Can we trade away Ontario? Or at least Toronto? We'll cover the cap hit.— al logan (@allogan2) June 21, 2018
Count New Mexico in on that plan. We have the best chile in the states to offer. :)— 🌊 Linda Bres..... 🌊 (@JustMyLittleBit) June 20, 2018
Yes yes yes yes!!!! We'd love to have you and you'll love JT!!!— Enjoy today...I will! (@purplefun1) June 21, 2018
Talks of the annexation of various U.S. states have been going on ever since Trump took office back in November 2016. While such states may never become Canadian provinces in reality, the fact that Americans are even discussing the idea shows just how divided the American people are at the moment.
