NEW YORK — Barbra Streisand and Cher both vow to move abroad if Donald Trump is elected president again.

Streisand recently told late-night host Stephen Colbert, “I will move. I can’t live in this country if he became president.”

Cher told The Guardian, “If he gets in, who knows? This time I will leave (the country).”

Empty promises. They both claimed they’d emigrate if Trump won in 2017, and both stayed in America, along with 18 other Hollywood stars who had vowed to move abroad, including Samuel L. Jackson, Miley Ray Cyrus, Bryan Cranston, Whoopi Goldberg, George Lopez and Chelsea Handler.


Maritza Ramos — the widow of murdered NYPD detective Rafael Ramos — has spent the eight years since his death providing backpacks and uniforms for schoolchildren in Bedford Stuyvesant.


“People remember who he was, and that’s what I want,” Ramos told me.

The Ramos Foundation’s annual Winter Gala Fundraiser will be held Nov. 30 at Russo’s on the Bay in Howard Beach honoring Police Commissioner Edward Caban, Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey, and lawyer Arthur Aidala, who helped Maritza create the foundation.

Aidala remembers how then-Mayor Bill de Blasio came to a Police Athletic League gala shortly after Ramos and a fellow cop were gunned down on Dec. 20, 2014.

The punk who shot Ramos and his partner in their patrol car, then killed himself.
