People are starting to call for secession from the US after Trump won, as often happens on election night.

So what exactly is the legal process for a state to secede from the Union? Asking for a friend.... #ElectionNight

I think now's a good time to bring up the idea of secession. Is it really so crazy? Right now, tell me how you feel.

California wants out.

I am not kidding. CA we are the 7th largest economy in the world. Let's secede. Fuck the USA

Well, I have long been a proponent of California secession. You're all welcome to come.

So do people from Oregon.

petition for Oregon to secede from the U.S. rt if you agree

New York City, too.

And some people from DC are saying screw it to statehood, let's bail.

Starting to think DC should forget statehood and think secession

In fact, talk of secession has gotten so widespread, it's now one of the top lookups on Dictionary.com.

Now "secede" is in our top look-ups: https://t.co/h9Duh08IrC #ElectionNight

But, as rough as it's gotten, some people don't want to secede — instead, they want the states that voted for Trump to GTFO instead.
