‘I like her music 25% less now’: Trump says on Taylor Swift's backing the Democrats

There’s definitely a bad blood between music star Taylor Swift and one of her biggest fans, US President Donald Trump. He has declared that he now liked the ‘Reputation’ singer’s music a bit less, since she went and endorsed his opposition.

For years, the all-American girl was under fire on social media for being a rare celebrity, refusing to drag her legions of social media followers into the swampy waters of identity politics.

Everything changed on Sunday, when Swift revealed on Instagram that she would be voting for Democrats in her home state of Tennessee, in a “Look what you made me do” tone.

Trump, who spent most of Monday travelling to Florida to speak at a conference of police chiefs, was apparently in the dark about Swift’s declaration until he was back at the White House and got asked about it by reporters.

“Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, OK?” he responded.

Meanwhile, pundit Piers Morgan joining the fray has argued 'this is why we can't have nice things', bemoaning that Swift did something bad and caved in to the pressure of a “Twitter mob” when all she had to do was stay apolitical.

“The President will be thrilled Taylor Swift has come out for the Democrats, because he knows that will enrage and fire up his base,” Morgan wrote in the Daily Mail.

There is definite proof that Trump is a fan, though because a video posted by Melania Trump on Facebook sometime in December 2014 shows the family riding in their Rolls Royce while listening to the recently released ‘Blank Space which she captioned: “Fun night with my two boys DJT & BWT,” she wrote, referring to Trump and their son Barron.
