(WISH) — Presidential elections come with promises from candidates and promises from voters to move to other countries if a particular candidate wins.
#Calexit was trending on the social media platform on Wednesday afternoon. The term is a take on “Brexit,” where the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.
Here’s sample of what some people were saying:

do it, your state is bankrupt, has no resources, is swarmed with illegals, and always votes blue. Please leave now

California needs to become independent so we have a decent state to live in. Tweet #Calexit right now to make this happen 🇺🇸

I wouldn’t be opposed to #Calexit.
Californians are moving to Texas because Texas is #1 for jobs.
Leave the liberal polices behind.

California alone would have the world’s 6th largest economy if it were an independent nation 🤔 #calexit
