Donald Trump is putting smiles on the faces of conservatives today with comments about some of the pro-abortion activists who have said they will leave the country if he is elected president. Trump says that people like pro-abortion “comedian” Lena Dunham leaving the country if he is elected is yet another reason to vote for him.

Dunham on Monday became the latest celebrity to say she’d move to Canada if Trump wins the White House, acknowledging that, while many people are threatening it, “I really will.”

“I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there,” Dunham, a supporter of pro-abortion Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, said at the Matrix Awards.

Here’s Trump’s response:

During a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked about a tweet from Lena Dunham on Monday in which she vowed to leave the U.S. for Vancouver if he is elected president.

Trump’s response: “Well, she’s a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo.”

“I heard Whoopi Goldberg too. That would be a great thing for our country,” Trump said, as the show flashed a graphic of celebrities who it said would leave the U.S. for Canada, including Dunham, Jon Stewart, and Rosie O’Donnell, with whom the Manhattan real-estate mogul has feuded for years.

When co-host Steve Doocy pointed out that O’Donnell’s name on the list, Trump remarked, “Now I have to get elected.”

“Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country,” he said. “Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.”
