Barbra Streisand Threatens To Move Down Under if Donald Trump Wins

Barbra Streisand is threatening to take her talents Down Under if the Donald is elected president.

Saying she was “astounded” by Trump’s support, the iconic singer vowed to move to Australia or Canada if he wins the race to the White House, the Times of Israel reported, quoting Australian TV station.

“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 journalist Michael Usher in the interview.

Streisand, who has already endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton, added that she hoped supporters of the Republican presidential candidate would “come back to sanity.”

The interview came days after Babs sang a duet with an actor playing Trump on NBC’s Jimmy Fallon show.
