Taylor Swift Slams Donald Trump For His ‘Calculated Dismantling Of USPS’ & Urges Her Fans To Vote Early
Singer Taylor Swift is calling out president Donald Trump on twitter for his “calculated dismantling of USPS”. The singer sent a clear message to the president in a series of tweets. Taylor Swift writes,
“Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president. He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”
She continued and urged her fans to vote early in this year’s election,
“Donald Trump’s ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely. Request a ballot early. Vote early.”
This is not the first time that Taylor Swift has criticized Donald Trump. In May, she called out the president after he took to Twitter to inform the nation that the National Guard is sending 500 of its officers to Minneapolis after the burning of several local businesses and a police precinct in response to George Floyd’s death by an officer.
In a pair of tweets, Donald Trump said:
“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right…..”
“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”
Twitter ultimately flagged his second tweet, making it a click-on option for the interest of the public. His response also did not sit well with some of the public, including Taylor Swift, who felt as though he was glorifying violence.
The Folklore singer tweeted to the president directly, ending with a statement. In her tweet, Taylor wrote,
“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump“
The USPS, also known as the U.S. Postal Service, has been going through some tough times due to the coronavirus pandemic which has decreased the amount of mail and packages being shipped. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been conversations ongoing about what voting will look like in November, and voting by mail measures are starting to become an option. The president so far has been vocal about his concerns towards this format of voting and has claimed that voting by mail will cause voter fraud.
