The former President Donald Trump took to social media on Sunday to claim that the radically liberal singer Taylor Swift can’t endorse Joe Biden because he is “the worst and most corrupt president.” This came hours before Swift attended the Super Bowl to cheer on her boyfriend Travis Kelce as his team the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers.
Trump Sounds Off On Swift
Though Swift proudly endorsed Biden back in 2020, Trump does not believe that she will be able to do so this time around.
“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists. Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will,” Trump stated.
“There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money,” he continued. “Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”
Swift’s Coveted Endorsement
Swift has yet to back a candidate in this year’s presidential election, but her endorsement is already highly sought after. Last month, a poll conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies for Newsweek found that eighteen percent of voters stated that they are “more likely” or “significantly more likely” to vote for whichever candidate that Swift is supporting.
Meanwhile, seventeen percent said that they would be less likely to vote for a candidate backed by Swift, and 55 percent said that they would not be swayed either way by the “Anti-Hero” singer. A total of 45 percent of the people that responded to the poll said that they were Swift fans, while 54 percent said that they were not.
“She’s influenced popular culture, sports, the economics of entire regions of the U.S.,” said communications consultant James Haggerty. “So why not politics and elections?”
“Swift is in the class by herself,” added media consultant Brad Adgate. “She’s so talented and so popular and so ingrained in pop culture. No one is close to her.”
Swift Bashes Trump
This poll seemingly came as bad news for Trump, as Swift has been open about being against him politically. Back in 2020, Swift accused Trump of “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism” in response to comments he made condemning the violence that spread throughout the country in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence?” she wrote on social media at the time, according to Daily Mail. “When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump.”
In her Netflix documentary “Miss Americana,” Swift talked about how much she regrets not openly opposing Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
“I like Taylor’s music about 25% less now,” Trump said in response.
Swift Accuses Trump Of ‘Gaslighting’
Swift told The Guardian in 2020 that Trump is “gaslighting the American public.”
“We’re a democracy – at least, we’re supposed to be – where you’re allowed to disagree, dissent, debate,” she said at the time. “I really think that he thinks this is an autocracy.”
Fox News reported that Swift also accused Trump of cheating in the 2020 presidential election.
“Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president,” she said. “He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”
At the time of this writing, Swift has yet to respond to Trump’s latest comments about her. Only time will tell if Trump is right in saying that Swift won’t be able to endorse Biden this time around.
