Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will “be doing a great service to our country,” if his election leads to Lena Dunham moving to Canada.
“Well, she’s a B-actor, and, you know, has no — you know, mojo,” Trump said of the Jewish “Girls” star during a phone interview with “Fox & Friends.”
The Republican frontrunner says it only stokes his presidential ambition to know that Dunham, along with other celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell, threatened to leave the country if he is elected.
“I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that, too. That would be a great, great thing for our country . . . Rosie O’Donnell, we’ll get rid of Rosie. Oh I love it,” he said. “Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country. Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.”
Dunham said Monday she would move to Canada if the real estate mogul was elected president.
“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she said. “I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”
Dunham, who has campaigned for Hillary Clinton, has so far refrained from hitting back at the Donald. She did post a link Monday to an article she wrote endorsing the Democratic candidate.
