“I Will Destroy My Green Card And Start Packing If Donald Trump Wins” – Wole Soyinka


Nigerian noble laureate Wole Soyinka says he will destroy his green card and leave the United States if it so happens that Donald Trump wins the presidential election.

According to a report by The Guardian, Soyinka, a scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of American Affairs, disclosed the plan in a speech to Oxford students.

He was quoted as saying:



“If in the unlikely event he does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say (that) all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that.
“The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up.”
The Nobel laureate also criticised Brexit, warning that there is a rise of “ultranationalism” and calling on young people to resist oppression.

His comments come less than three weeks after 70 Nobel laureates backed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
