Former President Donald Trump used Super Bowl to remind pop superstar Taylor Swift — a staunch supporter of the Democratic Party — that he made her a-lot of money with the Music Modernization Act.
“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists. Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post. “There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money. Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”

Trump appeared to be getting ahead of a long-rumored endorsement of Biden on the part of Swift.
According to a report from the New York Times, a major facet of the Biden Campaign’s 2024 strategy hinges on enlisting celebrities to shill for their policies. An endorsement from Taylor Swift is reportedly coveted as the most valuable nod the campaign can receive given her popularity among women of several age brackets.
Swift previously endorsed the Biden-Harris campaign in 2020. “I spoke to @vmagazine about why I’ll be voting for Joe Biden for president. So apt that it’s come out on the night of the VP debate. Gonna be watching and supporting @KamalaHarris by yelling at the tv a lot,” Swift wrote in an X post on the night of the vice-presidential debate.
She posted the endorsement alongside a photo of herself holding cookies decorated with the campaign’s logo.

Swift also weighed in on the 2018 Senate race between Marsha Blackburn and Democrat challenger Phil Bredesen by endorsing the Democrat. Her efforts ultimately proved unsuccessful as Blackburn cruised to victory.
