Three celebrities who vowed to leave the United States if Donald Trump won the presidency are now backing away from their promises, saying they'll stay in America.

Singer Miley Cyrus, Chelsea Handler and Amy Schumer, both comedians and actresses, all announced on social media after this week's election they have changed their mind.

In Instagram posts after the election, Cyrus seemed to urge her followers to accept Trump as the president-elect and as president when he's sworn in in January.

Handler posted a message on her Twitter account Thursday, saying that leaving the U.S. would be "quitting.

And on her Instagram account, Schumer — a distant cousin of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — said her pledge to live in another country was made in "jest."

 

First of all the interview where I said I would move was in London and was said in jest. Not that anyone needs more than a headline to count something as official news. Anyone saying pack your bags is just as disgusting as anyone who voted for this racist homophobic openly disrespectful woman abuser. Like the rest of us I am grieving today. My heart is in a million pieces. My heart breaks for my niece and my friends who are pregnant bringing children into the world right now. Like everyone else I am horrified that people believed these bumper sticker slogans filled with hate he spewed. People who voted for him you are weak. You are not just misinformed. You didn't even attempt information. You say lock her up and you know something about the word email but what was in the emails? You have no clue. Well I'll tell you if you were able to read this far through the holes in your sheet. They said nothing incriminating. Nothing. She dedicated her entire life to public service and got our children Heath care and education without discrimination. he didn't pay his workers. Started a fake college. Ripped people off. Never paid his taxes and sexually assaulted women and on and on She would have taken care of us. I personally would have had to pay higher taxes. All the celebrities backing her would have. People asked how much I was paid to stand with her. Nothing. None of us were paid a dollar. We would have had to pay a lot more because we are fortunate enough to make a high income. But we all wanted to do it to take care of the people in need. She was fighting to take care of you kicking and screaming babies. Yelling about emails you know nothing about and not liking her clothes or her hair she wanted to protect you even you. Well you've gotten what you asked for and now you can watch the sky open up. Literally. I am furious. I cry for her and for all the smart people I love who know what's right and I cry for you people who fell for shiny hats and reality catch phrases. She would have protected you. Today we grieve tomorrow we begin again. Yes this quote is fake but it doesn't matter

Trump, a Republican, defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday's presidential election. His victory has resulted in uproar from the left, with protests — some violent — breaking out in several U.S. cities.

Trump complained the protests were unfair in a Thursday night post on Twitter, but he changed his tune Friday morning and commended the protesters' "passion" for America.
