Taylor Swift launches excoriating attack on Trump and calls him ‘a blatant cheat’ who is ‘dismantling’ the USPS to ‘hold onto power’ and is ‘WELL AWARE’ that ‘we do not want him as our president’
Singer Taylor Swift has launched a blistering attack on President Donald Trump, accusing him of ‘dismantling’ the US Postal Service in an attempt to rig the November presidential election.
‘Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president,’ Swift wrote in a tweet on Saturday.
‘He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power,’ she continued.
Swift, 30, for much of her career avoided speaking about politics, but in recent years has been more vocal in her support for Democratic candidates and causes.

It comes as the USPS is warning states it cannot guarantee that all ballots cast by mail for the November 3 election will arrive in time to be counted, even if ballots are mailed by state deadlines — raising the possibility that millions of votes could go uncounted.
Trump’s critics say he is denying desperately needed funding to the USPS, which faces historic revenue shortfalls amid the pandemic, that would ensure an orderly election as millions vote by mail for the first time.
Trump himself claims that a massive shift to voting by mail is itself an attempt to affect the election, alleging that mail-in ballots are ripe for fraud.
