2300 people out of 320 million is apparently a "huge surge".

Huge Surge in Americans Renouncing U.S. Citizenship After Trump’s Election | Heat Street

'Critics of Donald Trump will presumably conclude that people are afraid to remain in America during his presidency, because he is bad and dangerous and stuff. '

'More than 2,300 people choose to give up their U.S. citizenship in the final quarter of the presidential election year. '

'The final months of 2016, during which time Donald Trump was elected president, saw a 50 percent increase in individuals renouncing their U.S. citizenship, compared to the same period last year. '

'But the timing of this year’s massive surge in renunciations suggests that the presidential election, not taxes, is the big reason. '

'As many experts have probably noted, it is ironic that so many people are renouncing their U.S. citizenship at precisely the moment when the country is becoming great again. '

This has been an automated message.

This isn't libtards leaving the US because of Trump. This is rich, educated people who make a living in another country, who see themselves living there for the rest of their lives and don't want to pay taxes to that country and to the US. The US is one of two or three countries on the planet that taxes people even if they don't live in the US, as long as they're US citizens or greencard holders.

This has been on the rise since 2008 when the US government decided to crack down and hunt down all these foreign US citizens to tax them.
