News broadcasters around the world delivered the results of the election live throughout the night. Donald Trump is now the 45th President of the United States.

But what does this mean for us? The news of his victory may send self-confessed “biggest bitch in Britain” Katie Hopkins packing.

The controversial TV personality tweeted: “If Donald Trump wins the race to the White House I’m moving to America. Daring to bare what some people really think. #DonaldTrump” in December last year.

In light of Trump’s win against presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Twitter users did not waste time to remind Hopkins of her promise. Matt Holman called her a bluff with a polite farewell tweet:

One user was ‘concerned’ she hadn’t booked her tickets:

Other Twitter users made a suggestion she should take ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage with her:

But Jacara Catera’s tweet expressed her frustration towards the rumour of Katie Hopkins moving to the US. The tweet puts the situation in perspective for many Americans who are disappointed with the result of the election:

It is no surprise Katie Hopkins supports Donald Trump. They share similarities. The business tycoon thanked “respected columnist” for her “powerful writing on the UK’s Muslim problems”, after she supported his claims that parts of London had become radicalised.

Hopkins celebrated the result of the election this morning on Twitter and posted a series of tweets in response:

She has yet to confirm if the rumour is true but the public hold out hope.
