Donald Trump: Lena Dunham Moving to Canada "Would Be a Great, Great Thing for Our Country"
“She’s a B actor and has no mojo,” the billionaire businessman said. “I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that, too."
Donald Trump does not care if Lena Dunham leaves the country should he be elected president, and he said it would be even better if Rosie O'Donnell followed.
Trump made the comments during a Fox & Friends phone interview Tuesday morning when he was asked about the recent statements from the Girls creator and star about her plans to move to Canada if he were elected president.
“She’s a B actor and has no mojo,” Trump said. “I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that, too. That would be a great, great thing for our country if she got out."
Trump is the current GOP frontrunner for the nomination.
On Monday, during the Matrix Awards, Dunham said, “I know a lot of people have been threatening to [move], but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.”
O'Donnell is another celebrity the Fox hosts said threatened to leave should Trump be elected. The billionaire businessman said he liked that news.
“We’ll get rid of Rosie? Oh, I love it. Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country. I have to," Trump said. "Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now."
O'Donnell and Trump have been bitter adversaries for years.
During the same interview on Fox & Friends, Trump defended friend Tom Brady, who is once again in the spotlight for Deflategate. A New York appeals court Monday ruled the New England quarterback must serve a four-game suspension handed down by the league for his alleged involvement in the 2015 scandal.
"Tom is such a great guy," Trump said. "Hopefully they can settle it now, cut [the suspension] in half and get back to business."
