Looks like Matt Damon could be leaving the country over Trump, but he’s not heading to Haiti…

Matt Damon’s apparently going down under, and it’s all President Trump’s fault.

A source told Page Six the “Good Will Hunting” actor is taking his family to live in Australia over frustration with the Republican president’s policies.

“Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia,” the source said, citing the star’s disagreements with President Trump.

The insider, an unnamed friend of Damon’s, said the move won’t interfere with the celebrity’s work schedule, which is free of any major upcoming projects following the disappointing box office performance of his most recent film, “Downsizing.”

“Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting.”

Damon reportedly believes his family is not safe in the US under President Trump.

According to the source, “he’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”

The actor won’t be among unknowns. He’s already bought a house next to the home of “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth, The Daily Telegraph reports.

Damon publicly criticized President Trump last year, labeling his comments in the wake of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va. “absolutely abhorrent.”

“To see these young, aggrieved, white boys walking with their torches and screaming ‘Jews will not replace us!’ It was just shocking. Then the night that the President [made his] ‘many sides’ comment was absolutely abhorrent,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

A number of celebrities, including Samuel L. Jackson, Lena Dunham, and Bryan Cranston vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump became president, but failed to follow through once the election was over.
