Robert De Niro has said he might leave this country after Donald Trump won the presidency, and now a mayor in Italy is offering to help him make that happen.
On Sunday, the mayor of Ferrazzano, in the Italian region of Molise, said if the 73-year-old actor is serious is about wanting to leave the United States of America, he will give him asylum — stating that they were “ready to welcome him with open arms,” according to the Independent.
“If, after the disappointment of Trump’s election, he wants to take refuge here, we would be honoured to welcome him,” Ferrazzano Mayor Antonio Cerio responded.
“To welcome someone like De Niro would be an amazing promotion for us on the international stage,” a local resident said. “This is the right place in which to forget the electoral defeat (of Hillary Clinton) and avoid having to beat up Trump.”
