Iconic Jewish singer Barbra Streisand said during an interview with Australian TV that she will move to Australia or Canada if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States.

Streisand, 74, who has endorsed Hillary Clinton and is known as a Democratic Party supporter, made the threat to move during an interview Sunday aired on the local version of “60 Minutes.”

“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country, if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” Streisand told Sydney journalist Michael Usher.

Usher told Streisand that she was “very welcome” to live in Australia.

Streisand called on Trump’s American supporters to “come back to sanity.”

On the “Tonight Show” on Thursday night, Streisand sang a duet with host Jimmy Fallon impersonating Trump.

The pair sang a comedic rendition of “Anything You Can Do” that skewered many of Trump’s statements from the campaign trail, including his intention of building a wall along the Mexican.

Streisand is in the middle of a tour in support of her 35th album made up of duets, titled “Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.” She mocked Trump repeatedly during the tour’s first concert.
