Are Americans seriously hoping to flee the country following the presidential election of Donald Trump? Well, based on the astronomical numbers perusing Canada’s tourist website, the assumption would be … yep.
As numbers continued to skyrocket in favor of Trump on Tuesday night, a large group of Americans were opening up their computers and searching Canada’s immigration website. In fact, so many were active on the site, it completely crashed.
It was around 11 p.m. EST when users attempting to access the site got slapped with a “500 – Internal server error” message. Under the server banner, a message read, “There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.”
When Trump first announced that he would be running for President of the United States, many joked that if it came true, they would leave the country. What millions of Americans probably didn’t expect, however, is that Trump would lock in the Oval Office.
Following the election that left many Americans shocked and disappointed, several memes popped up via social media about the desire for US citizens to up and move their families. In the same breath, funny memes were created to simply remind Americans how calm, cool and collected their country is. Sigh.
Canada’s official website even chimed in — poking fun at their wildly different views on immigration policy.
“In Canada, immigrants are encouraged to bring their cultural traditions with them and share them with their fellow citizens,” a tweet read on the country’s Twitter account.
Let us remind you, Trump thinks Mexican immigrants are “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime” and suggested “they’re rapists.” Based the president-elect’s views, he thinks building a wall would be ideal. “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall,” he said back in 2015.

Trump, by the way, picked up 276 electoral votes. Hillary Clinton had 218.
Prenup For What? The Real Reason Prince Harry Doesn’t Need Meghan Markle To Sign On The Dotted Line
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are keeping the fairytale alive by forgoing a prenup … but this might not be as romantic as it sounds.
According to a source, Harry believes his marriage to Meghan will last forever and there’s no reason to safeguard his £30 million fortune. “There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a prenup,” one of his “friends” told DailyMail. “He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.”
Awww, that’s beautiful … but the gag is, even if Markle signed a prenup it wouldn’t mean much. Unfortunately, prenups are not legally enforceable in the UK. However, they are increasingly taken into account during divorce cases, so at least there’s that.
Also, Prince Harry isn’t the first to take this route. His big brother Prince William made the same move when he married Kate Middleton. In addition, their mother, Princess Diana, didn’t have a prenup either. Consequently, she had to fight tooth and nail to get her £17 million settlement when she divorced Prince Charles.
Hopefully, the royal couple’s union will be one that last a lifetime. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed on May 19th at Windsor Castle in England.
