The former president called Swift—who has shown support for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris—“unusually beautiful.”

Trump also questioned Swift’s political beliefs, pondering if her liberal stance is “just an act.”

“She is a liberal, or is that just an act?” Trump asked. “She’s legitimately liberal? It’s not an act? It surprises me that a country star can be successful being liberal.”

Following George Floyd’s death, Swift criticized Trump, accusing him of “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism.”

“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence?” Swift wrote in a post on X from May 2020. “‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November.”

The singer has also participated in events with Biden and former President Barack Obama. In June 2020, Swift took part in a virtual gay pride celebration with Biden and Obama, along with Katy Perry and Ellen DeGeneres.

Swift criticized Trump again in August 2020 after he defended the United States Postal Service’s warning that it might not ensure timely delivery of mail-in ballots for the presidential election in 46 states.

In October 2020, Swift endorsed Biden for president, expressing hope that under a Biden-Harris administration, America would have a “chance to start the healing process.”
