Trump: I Like Taylor Swift’s Music ‘About 25 Percent Less Now’
President Donald Trump isn’t quite the Swiftie he was before. While speaking to reporters Monday, Trump said he liked pop star Taylor Swift’s music “about 25 percent less now” after she broke her political silence to support Democrats in the November midterms. “Marsha Blackburn is doing a very good job in Tennessee. She’s leading now substantially, which is good. She’s a tremendous woman,” he said of the Republican candidate to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN). “I’m sure Taylor Swift doesn’t know anything about her and let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 percent less now, OK?” The previously apolitical Swift broke her silence Sunday night, writing in an Instagram post that Rep. Blackburn’s voting record “appalls and terrifies” her, and she will be voting for Blackburn’s opponent, Phil Bredesen, in November.
