Lena Dunham wants to move to Vancouver if Donald Trump wins the U.S. presidential election. 

The Girls actress is one of the latest string of celebrities vowing to leave the U.S. for Canada if the Republican candidate becomes POTUS. 

Dunham has been actively campaigning for Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.

"I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will," she reportedly said at the Matrix Awards in New York City on Monday. 

"I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there."

Trump: 'She's a B-actress'

But the billionaire candidate took it all in stride. 

When asked about Dunham's comments in a phone interview with Fox News, Trump said, "Well, now I have to get elected because I'll be doing a great service to our country."

"She's a B-actress and has no mojo," he said. 

"I heard Whoopi Goldberg said that too and it would be a great thing for our country."

Social media reaction in Vancouver

Meanwhile Twitter lit up with Vancouverites tweeting about Dunham's promise.
