Barbra Streisand, a famous singer and actress, has recently expressed her strong feelings about the possibility of Donald Trump being re-elected as President of the United States in 2024.

Streisand, known for her critical views of Trump, made a bold statement saying she would leave the United States if he wins the election again.

This isn’t the first time Streisand has spoken about leaving the country due to political reasons. In the past, she, along with other celebrities, talked about moving to places like Canada or Europe if Trump won the 2016 election. However, these promises were not fulfilled by most.

Streisand, at 81 years old, has been a vocal critic of Trump. She has referred to him as “ill-informed” and “so stupid.” In her music and public appearances, she has not held back in expressing her disapproval. Her 36th album, “Walls,” released in 2018, was inspired by her frustrations with Trump’s presidency. The album features songs that reflect her feelings about the political climate and Trump’s leadership.

In her memoir, “My Name is Barbra,” released in 2023, Streisand discusses the role of artists in politics. She believes that artists should speak out on important issues and serve as the conscience of a country. She argues that art can challenge people to see things they might otherwise ignore and give a voice to those who don’t have one.

Following the 2016 election, Streisand expressed her disappointment and shock at Trump’s victory. She mentioned possibly moving to Australia or Canada but ultimately stayed in the United States. Other celebrities, like comedian George Lopez and talk show host Jon Stewart, made similar statements about leaving the country or even the planet if Trump won.

After Trump’s presidency, Streisand spoke positively about President Joe Biden, praising his honesty and compassion. She remains concerned about the future of the country and the potential re-election of Trump.

Streisand’s recent statements about leaving the country if Trump is re-elected have reignited discussions about the role of celebrities in political discourse. Some people appreciate their outspokenness, while others question it.
