#Calexit is currently trending on Twitter in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 Presidential election.
What is #Calexit, you ask? Well, it’s a proposal for California to secede from the United States. The proposal suggests a referendum on the issue in 2019.
And here are the reasons why some Californians want to leave the United States.
The first instance of the hashtag appears on November 1st.
But now, in light of protests in San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Sacramento…
…the term is trending more broadly.
There are hundreds more just like these.
Secession was previously a topic reserved for disaffected Texas conservatives but now it looks like some liberal Californians are quite serious about it.
