Irish Island Welcomes Americans Fleeing Trump

If this week's Republican National Convention has you worried about the future of the country, the tiny Irish island of Inishturk would like to offer refuge.

Located about 9 miles off the coast of County Mayo, Inishturk will welcome, officials say, those Americans considering leaving the U.S. if Donald Trump is elected president. The island could certainly use the population boost—it currently has only 58 fulltime residents and the elementary school has only three students.

Earlier this year, another island, Cape Breton off the coast of Nova Scotia in Canada, launched a similar campaign encouraging Americans to move there if they're unhappy with the prospect of Trump in the Oval Office.

So hey, if things don't go your way come November, you could always Make Inishturk or Cape Breton Great Again.
