Moments ago, pop star Taylor Swift tore into Trump with a pair of tweets alleging the President is trying to “blatantly cheat” in the November election.
Swift, who has 86.9 million Twitter followers, wrote “Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president. He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”
Swift added in a second tweet “Donald Trump’s ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely. Request a ballot early. Vote early.”
In the past year, Swift has increasingly taken on the role of political activist.
Swift spoke out for taking down historic confederate statues in her home state of Tennessee.
Swift wrote June 12th “As a Tennessean, it makes me sick that there are monuments standing in our state that celebrate racist historical figures who did evil things. Edward Carmack and Nathan Bedford Forrest were DESPICABLE figures in our state history and should be treated as such.”
She added “His statue is still standing and July 13th is ‘Nathan Bedford Forrest Day.’ Due to social pressure, the state is trying to overrule this, and Tennesseans might no longer have to stomach it. Fingers crossed.”
Swift also recently replied to Biden running mate Kamala Harris’s tweet about joining Joe Biden’s ticket with a simple “YES.”
