The Trump Clause Offers a Way Out in the Event of the Unthinkable

After Tuesday’s US primary & caucus vote, many people may now be looking for a way out come November.

With a huge delegate lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, the increasing possibility of a Trump presidency has many people concerned and even thinking of packing-up and leaving the country for Canada.

According to Google Trends, searches for “How can I move to Canada?” spiked upwards of 1,150% after Trump’s win during Super Tuesday in March.

To make the prospect as painless as possible for people eager to avoid a potential Trump presidency, a new escape clause has been created: The Trump Clause.

The Trump Clause is a series of free, safeguard legal clauses that people can use in their personal, professional and business affairs to protect themselves in the event Trump wins the White House.

“Sometimes life doesn’t quite work out the way you want it to. When that happens you have to consider alternatives. In the case of the U.S. Presidential race, the Trump Clause is a creative alternative for those seeking peace of mind,” says Canadian immigration lawyer Andy J. Semotiuk who works with Pace Law Firm in Toronto.

The Trump Clause is made up of 10 different clauses, each created and chosen based on data analytics of the most popular and relevant conversations currently being discussed in social media.

There’s a clause for people who are taking a new job in the U.S. and want their expenses covered both ways if they quit. There’s another for people who are buying a new house in the U.S. and want the seller to pay them back half the forthcoming depreciation amount. There’s even one to get you out of a long-distance relationship with someone living in the U.S.

More legal clauses are planned for release, based on public feedback.  The creative agency on the project is Grey Canada.
