FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – One South Floridian is backing up his promise to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president.

Boris Werner Mettin of Fort Lauderdale held a moving sale outside his home Friday with a large sign reading "I'm fleeing the USA to get away from the 'American Hitler.'"

Mettin, a massage therapist, says he is picking up and moving from his home on Riverland Road to South America after Tuesday's election result.

An American citizen born in Germany, Mettin says he knows what the build up to Hitler looked like and says things look all too familiar for his liking.

Leading up to the final election, many claimed they would move out of the country if Trump was elected, although a majority of those people, including celebrities, are now walking back those statements.

However, the site of the sale and the sign was enough to shock Douglas Esquire into immediately sending a Tweet to WPLG-TV.

Mettin plans to relocate to Medellin, Colombia.
