Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka swore to destroy his green card and leave the United States of America if Donald Trump is elected president in the country’s presidential election.

Soyinka who now lives in the US and a scholar in residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs made this known while speaking to his students at Oxford University, England, this autumn. Hear him:

“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.”

Soyinka made the comment just a few days after about 370 economists and eight Nobel laureates denounced Trump, accusing him of promoting conspiracy theories, among other things.

While he garnered 289 electoral votes out of the required 270 votes, his opponent, Hillary Clinton polled 218 electoral votes, making the businessman the 45th President of the United States.

The surprise outcome, defying late polls that showed Hillary Clinton with a modest but persistent edge, threatened convulsions throughout the country and the world, where skeptics had watched with alarm as Mr. Trump’s unvarnished overtures to disillusioned voters took hold.

The triumph for Mr. Trump, 70, a real estate developer-turned-reality television star with no government experience, was a powerful rejection of the establishment forces that had assembled against him, from the world of business to government, and the consensus they had forged on everything from trade to immigration.
