Trump says ‘there’s no way’ Taylor Swift will endorse Biden 


Former President Trump on Sunday poured cold water on the idea global superstar Taylor Swift would endorse President Biden amid swirling speculation the incumbent’s campaign team is trying to secure the endorsement of the pop singer.

“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 wrote in a post on Truth Social on Sunday. “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.”

“Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!” in reference to Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who is dating Swift.

Trump was referencing a bill he signed in 2018 that dealt with copyright issues that was seen as a landmark bill for the music industry.

Questions surrounding Swift’s potential involvement in politics were sparked last month after The New York Times released a report that Biden’s aides are vying for the support of the “Shake It Off” singer as the campaign centers its focus on November’s general election. The Times reported the campaign was flooded with suggestions to get Swift’s voice on board, including sending Biden to a stop of Swift’s “Eras Tour.”

Trump’s comment on a potential Swift endorsement comes just hours before Kelce and the Chiefs will square off with the San Francisco 49ers for Super Bowl LVII on Sunday in Las Vegas.

The timing of Swift’s budding relationship with Kelce has prompted swirling conspiracy theories on conservative media. The theories are based on the unfounded idea that the league is rigging games to make sure the pop singer and her boyfriend’s team both make and win the Super Bowl and eventually support Biden’s reelection bid.

The singer has not spoken about endorsing Biden’s 2024 run, but she did voice her support for him during the 2020 presidential election in an interview with V Magazine. An endorsement from Swift could spark a boost in Biden’s numbers, with some pointing to Swift’s single Instagram post last year directing her followers to the nonpartisan, nonprofit Vote.org that led to 35,000 new voter registrations.
