Grey Canada Offers Americans A Way Out With 'The Trump Clause'

It's no secret that Donald Trump could very well win the nomination and the general election, becoming President of the United States. Many in America are horrified at that prospect and would do just about anything to avoid living in an America run by Trump. Including moving to Canada -- a mindset that has resulted in a 1,150% increase in Google searches for "How can I move to Canada" since Super Tuesday in March. 

Aside from the fact that an American President is not a monarch and cannot make sweeping changes without days, weeks and months of battles with Congress -- you know, that checks and balances thing -- many Americans are seriously considering fleeing to Canada if Trump wins. 

While moving to Canada may seem as simple as driving over the border with your passport, becoming a Canadian citizen is about as easy as immigrating (or is it emigrating?) to America and becoming a citizen. That is to say, it takes years upon years, many hoops must be jumped through, and even then, citizenship is not guaranteed. 

That minor detail, though, hasn't stopped Grey Canada from lending a hand to Trump-fearing Americans -- and Canadians stuck in America -- with the launch of The Trump Clause , a series of free, standard legal clauses which people can use in their personal and professional business affairs should they choose to flee a Trump Presidency.

Of the stunt, Canadian immigration lawyer Andy Semotiuk said, “Sometimes life doesn’t quite work out the way you want it to. When that happens you have to consider alternatives. In the case of the U.S. Presidential race, the Trump Clause is a creative alternative for those seeking peace of mind." 

The Trump Clause is made up of 10 different clauses, each created and chosen based on data analytics of the most popular and relevant conversations currently being discussed in social media.  

There’s a clause for people who are taking a new job in the U.S. and want their expenses covered both ways if they quit. There’s another for people who are buying a new house in the U.S. and want the seller to pay them back half the forthcoming depreciation amount. There’s even one to get you out of a long-distance relationship with someone living in the U.S.  

Here's a list of the ten clauses currently available on The Trump Clause Web site: 

  1. I’m taking a new job in the US. I want my moving expenses covered both ways if I quit.
  2. My job with my current employer is transferring to the US. I want an escape clause to come home.
  3. My company is currently expanding to the US. I want my start-up costs fully reimbursed.
  4. My company exports from the US. I want a government subsidy to cover my forthcoming decrease in global sales.
  5. I’m a US diplomat in a foreign country that’s been repeatedly insulted. I want 24-hour high security protection.
  6. I’m a legally landed immigrant in the US. I want my new application fee to now immigrate to Canada paid for.
  7. I’m buying a new house in the US. I want the seller to pay me back half the forthcoming depreciation amount.
  8. I want to write off vacations outside the US for the next four years as a medical expense to keep my sanity.
  9. My long-distance boyfriend/girlfriend lives in the US. I want an out clause for a guilt-free, no-questions-asked break up.
  10. I live in Britain, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Iran, Saudi Arabia or the State of New Jersey. I want a handwritten POTUS apology.

Apparently, more clauses will be added as we approach D Day.
