After loudly opposing President Trump's immigration policies, a Hollywood celebrity is returning to the United States to take advantage of the safety it provides.
After living in Berkshire, England, for the past two and half years, George Clooney is planning to move back to the United States, an insider told Life & Style Magazine.
“He doesn’t feel like Amal and the twins are safe living in the English countryside,” the source says. “He’s determined to move his family to LA, where he feels much more secure.”
Not long ago, Clooney and his wife, Amal, blasted Trump as a “monster” and “Islamophobe” for his restrictive national security measures.
“[Trump's comments] that there should be a religious test imposed on entering the U.S. or the fact that there should be state-sponsored torture or that families of suspected terrorists should all be killed — all of those things are violations of international human rights law and the values that underlie that,” Amal said to over 7,000 attendees at the Texas Conference for Women, following Trump's election in November.
The human rights lawyer said that while she supported measures against terrorism, she felt the president-elect was going too far.
Her husband echoed those sentiments and stronger throughout Trump's campaign, dismissing his warnings of terrorism as unnecessary fear mongering.
“Let’s start much simpler — there is not gonna be a President Donald Trump,” he said. “Fear is not something that drives out country. We’re not going to be scared of Muslims or immigrants or women. We’re not actually afraid of anything, so we are not going to use fear. It’s not going to be an issue.”
Well, it seems now the issue is big enough reason to abandon his $12.88 million, nine-bedroom estate, where he previously idealized he “can imagine living with my wife and getting old and grey.”
But this isn't the first drastic security measure the Clooneys will take in response to UK terrorism. While building their secluded countryside mansion, the couple wanted to install CCTV cameras on eight wooden 18-foot poles, but they had to reduce the height of the poles due to government regulations in the area.
Earlier this year, the Clooney family announced they would not be traveling to places like South Sudan, the Congo, and Iraq, where they fear being targeted by terrorists.
“We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger,” the actor told Daily Mail.
The Clooneys will be moving back to their mansion in Studio City, California, where they feel the most secure, and live minutes away from a Los Angeles Police Department station.
“He’s waited so long for this family,” an insider told Life & Style. “He’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe."
