Americans looking to flee the United States after Donald Trump's surprise Election Day victory have a home in London, the city's mayor said Wednesday.

"Millions of people, I'm told, used Google's search engine [after] the election on Tuesday — we know millions use it every single day," London Mayor Sadiq Khan said. "I heard one of the most googled things since Wednesday has been 'how do you emigrate?' If talented people based in the U.S. want to come here to London, my message is simple: London is open."
