Sounds like you are the same age as my kids and their friends in the UK. All of them are planning to emigrate, but none of them are interested in Trump's USA, at all. When Trump is gone, and depending on who is in charge- they might change their mind. Fortunately my lot have Swiss passports and access to Irish- and excellent language skills on top of their great caeers, so they will have the choice.
I'm 32

I'd advise anyone my age or younger not to make decisions on a short term basis like Trump - who knows when and where the next loud mouthed bigot will pop up (look at Brazil), but on long term structural factors. Trump is obnoxious and a fool, but he hasn't really changed anything hugely. Just lowered the tone of political discourse really.

On a personal note - I plan to retire to Asia when I am FMF's age, but that could change with time. Doubt I will ever live in the US - which was always an ambition. I might try and encourage my kids too
