In a newly resurfaced video that first lady Melania Trump originally shared to Facebook in 2014, Trump, then a reality television star, listens to Swift’s hit record “Blank Space” on a car stereo while driving his wife and son Barron around:
The old video went viral Tuesday after singer-songwriter Swift broke her political silence and berated Tennessee’s GOP candidate for U.S. Senate, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, in a weekend Instagram post.
Swift said she could not “vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for all Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.” She also declared her vote for Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen.
Trump, who has previously called Swift “terrific,” reportedly responded Monday by telling journalists he now liked her “25 percent” less.
Trump tells us upon arriving back at the White House he likes Taylor Swift’s music but maybe about “25 percent” less now that she has endorsed Bredesen
