"If Donald Trump wins, I think it will seriously invigorate the people of California to support the independence referendum. So in that form, I guess we are going to support Donald Trump, because we believe that he will make Californians believe that independence is the best way out," Marinelli said.
The Yes, California Independence Campaign has an intention to organize a public opinion vote and see how many Californians want to be independent, Marinelli added.
According to Marinelli, the California’s independence referendum may take place in 2019, and the Yes, California Independence Campaign plans to start collecting signatures for the ballot initiative process in the state after the 2016 presidential elections in the United States, probably next summer.
The US presidential election is scheduled for November 8.
