While Washington fiercely fought the influx of migrants, and Donald Trump built a wall on the border with Mexico, the United States broke a record for denial of an American passport.
This is evidenced by the data of the accounting firm “Bambridge Accountants”.
So, in the first six months of 2020, over 5.8 thousand Americans renounced their citizenship. This is 1210% more than in the second half of 2019.
“We saw that people are worried about everything that happens to President Donald Trump, how they are fighting the coronavirus pandemic, and about political policy in the United States at the moment,” the company told CNN.
Bambridge Accountants believe that more people will refuse US passports if Donald Trump wins the November elections. However, Trump is not the only problem. In 2016, the current British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also renounced his American citizenship, complaining about “absolutely outrageous” US tax claims. Even getting out of American citizenship costs $ 2,350.
