WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – They promised, and they delivered. Thousands of Americans who had promised to leave the country if Donald Trump were elected president flew out of various international airports in the U.S. the day after Tuesday’s elections.
The airport authorities in Washington Dulles Airport, San Francisco International Airport, LAX, and Chicago’s O’Hare seemed to have prepared for the eventuality. International flights were allowed to take off simultaneously (see photo), with the expert guidance of control tower personnel who were asked to report on a 24-hour schedule.
Airport authorities told The Adobo Chronicles that majority of the flight destinations of passengers escaping the Trump victory included Canada, EU nations, Australia, Japan and the Philippines.
More flights have been added by the airlines to accommodate the sudden exodus or American-born as well as naturalized citizens.
The Clintons were not among those who fled the country.
