Depending on how the election turns out, Amy Schumer might be done with America.

The Inside Amy Schumer star told BBC Newsnight that she will be leaving the U.S. should Donald Trump win the presidential election in November. An avid Hillary Clinton fan, Schumer told the interviewer that she couldn't understand a world in which the real estate magnate would win.

"My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain or somewhere," Schumer said. "It's beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It's too crazy."

We'll just have to wait and see what happens in November, but until then we can probably expect to hear more candid commentary from Schumer. The Trainwreck star most recently made headlines for participating in what has been dubbed a polarizing edition of Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter. The two comediennes dissected the 2016 Met Gala, Odell Beckham Jr. and writer Kurt Metzger's controversial comments about rape, but their harsh stances were met with severe backlash.

"I have no interest in fashion," the Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo author said. "I don't care." Schumer, who wore a custom Alexander Wang gown, explained that she didn't see the point in pretending she was having good time, either. "I left earlier than I should have been allowed…I got to meet Beyoncé and she was like, 'Is this your first Met Gala?' and I was like, 'It's my last!'"

"You and I were literally sitting across from each other at the Met Ball, and it was like a crazy countdown to when we could escape. You were like, 'We're honored to be here. We're honored to be here,'" Dunham recalled. The Girls actress also decided to leave early. "I attempted to grind my ass on Michael B. Jordan for an additional 20 minutes and then left right after you."

But when Dunham claimed Odell acted like she wasn't "a woman of his standards," the Internet fought back, causing Dunham to issue an apology for her comments that many felt were racist, reverse-sexist observations. "I owe Odell Beckham Jr an apology. Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry events (and in life) with the sense that I don't rep a certain standard of beauty and so when I show up to the Met Ball surrounded by models and swan-like actresses it's hard not to feel like a sack of flaming garbage."

She continued, "This felt especially intense with a handsome athlete as my dinner companion and a bunch of women I was sure he'd rather be seated with. But I went ahead and projected these insecurities and made totally narcissistic assumptions about what he was thinking, then presented those assumptions as facts."

Neither Schumer nor Beckham Jr. commented on her statement.
