During the 2016 election, several celebrities promised to leave the country if Trump was elected as President of the United States. Funny enough, NONE of them actually made good on their promise, until now!
According to the NY Post, actor Matt Damon is moving his family to Australia because of his ongoing feud with Trump! (One down, MANY more to go).
Here’s the story from the Post:
Matt Damon is moving his family to Australia — in part because the liberal star’s fed up with President Trump.
Damon, 47, reportedly has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales, according to Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph. The home’s next door to a place owned by Chris Hemsworth — with whom Damon recently appeared in “Thor: Ragnarok.”
A source exclusively tells Page Six: “Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia” because the activist actor disagrees with Trump’s policies. The president’s frequently butted heads with liberal Hollywood A-listers including Meryl Streep. The source added, “Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting. He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.” Damon has four children with wife Luciana Barroso.
We have just two words for Matt Damon and his family….
Gotta give Damon credit here, at least HE kept his word! The other celebrities were clearly just bluffing.

Australia has a 45% tax rate for incomes over $180k. Wonder if he'll house his income there too??
Gonna go out on a limb and say no. https://t.co/sSFHUrpVk4
