Taylor Swift, 29, was mum about her political views in the past few years. But recently, the singer, songwriter and actress shared her views about United States President Donald Trump, 73.
On Donald Trump and democracy
“I really think that he thinks this is an autocracy,” Swift said of Trump in an interview with The Guardian in time for the release of her seventh studio album “Lover.” Since she did not endorse a candidate in the 2016 presidential election, she confirmed that would have endorsed Hillary Clinton, 71, for president.
Swift does not like the idea of convincing Americans that hating the president is tantamount to hating America. She noted, “We’re a democracy, at least, we’re supposed to be, where you’re allowed to disagree, dissent, debate.”
During the 2016 presidential election, Swift decided to distance herself from the public eye due to some personal issues. Her mother’s cancer relapsed and she had a controversial argument with Kanye West, 42, and Kim Kardashian, 38.
At the time, Swift tried to protect her mental health by not reading the news very much. Still, she managed to cast her vote and tell people to vote.
In hindsight, Swift regrets that she did not say anything about the national concerns of the U.S. But now, she is ready to speak up.
On of the current issues in the U.S. is the imposing of near-total ban on abortion in Tennessee, USA. Swift emphasized that she is pro-choice and she promised to do everything she could for 2020.
On August 23, 2019, Republic Records released “Lover,” which Swift executive produced. She produced her seventh studio album with Louis Bell, 37, Joel Little, 36, Jack Antonoff, 35, Frank Dukes, 35, and Mark Spears, 33, who is professionally known as Sounwave.
Swift wrote the title track, which is the third single of the album. The lead single “Me!” featuring Brendon Urie, 32, of Panic! at the Disco was released on April 26, 2019 while the second single “You Need to Calm Down” was released on June 14, 2019.
