Taylor Swift accuses President Trump of being a dictator


In an interview with The Guardian, singer Taylor Swift speaks of her sudden awakening in the political realm. Swift did not endorse any candidate in 2016, which drew much criticism from some of her fans, but the singer has had a recent change of heart. When asked of Donald Trump, the 29-year-old pop star said, “We’re a democracy – at least, we’re supposed to be – where you’re allowed to disagree, dissent, debate. I really think that he thinks this is an autocracy.”

Swift, who began her career in the Country genre with a majority-conservative fan base, now says she felt “really remorseful for not saying anything” and confirmed that she would have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president had she not had particular obstacles in her life at the time. “I just knew what I could handle and I knew what I couldn’t. I was literally about to break.”

Born in Pennsylvania, a state that flipped red in 2016, Swift’s ideas veer far from her origins, as she explained the political climate in America as “gaslighting the American public into being like, ‘If you hate the president, you hate America.’”
