Followed by a 'Yes' or 'No' button. No source is given for the purported quote and we were unable to locate one. Despite this fact and the obvious grammar mistake ('deport' instead of 'deports') it looks like many people are taking this at face value leading to rumors on social media that Barack Obama will indeed leave the country if Donald Trump ever deports muslim refugees.

It is probably only a matter of time before other fact checking websites like Snopes debunk this claim too but in the mean time you can do your part to combat this hoax:
