Al Sharpton said Thursday that if Republican presidential front-runner Donald TrumpDonald TrumpMaria Bartiromo defends reporting: 'Keep trashing me, I'll keep telling the truth' The Memo: The center strikes back Republicans eye Nashville crack-up to gain House seat MORE is elected president, the outspoken businessman would likely try to deport him. 

"If Donald Trump is the nominee, I'm open to support anyone [else], while I'm also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway," Sharpton said.
His remark was met with laughter at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event focused on issues during the presidential race. It was first highlighted by The Huffington Post.
Sharpton also suggested that Trump was the most surprised of anyone by his own political success, but cautioned the real estate tycoon could become a "prisoner of this wave that could go all the way if there is not a counter-wave."
Sharpton has yet to endorse in the presidential race, though he recently said he had pressed Sanders on the topic of racism when discussing income inequality when the two met earlier this month.
