The United States is minus one looney liberal thanks to the election of Donald Trump. Madonna says she has moved her family from New York to Portugal because they “needed a change,” after Donald Trump's election to office.
At least she kept her promise. During the 2016 election many celebrities promised to leave the country should Donald Trump become president. For most of those, we are still waiting.
MADONNA has revealed she moved her four youngest children to Portugal to not only further her son’s budding soccer career but to escape Donald Trump.
In an in-depth interview with Vogue Italia, Madonna blatantly alluded to the US President when she said she was keen to relocate her family for their Manhattan base as “this is not America’s finest hour”.
She has now settled in a mansion in Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, along with her Malawi-born children David Banda, 12, Mercy James, 12, and twins Stella and Esther, five.
The music legend, who is due to turn 60 on August 16, also talked about her new-found — and very un-Madonna like — status as a “soccer mom”, ferrying her talented son to football matches.
She told Vogue Italia she wanted her son David, who she adopted from Malawi in 2006, to realise his dreams and become the next Cristiano Ronaldo.
“My son David, who is going to be 13 on September 24, has wanted to play soccer professionally for years,” she told Vogue Italia in the interview, which was accompanied by a striking series of images by fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot.
