Trump attacked Swift a day after the singer and Nashville resident backed Democrat Phil Bredesen, a former governor, over Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn in the race for the Tennessee Senate.
"What did she say?" Trump said with a smile when asked about Swift's comments about Tennessee politics, walking toward reporters in the South Garden of the White House after hearing the name of the pop star shouting at him.
After Swift announced his opposition to Blackburn and backed Bredesen, Trump offered a quick compliment to Blackburn, who said he is "doing a very good job in Tennessee."
And then he served Swift with a diss.
"I'm sure Taylor Swift has nothing, or does not know anything about her (Blackurn)," Trump said.
And then he added, with a laugh: "Let's say I like Taylor's music in 25% less now, okay?"
Swift backed Bredesen and Rep. Jim Cooper, a Democrat running for re-election to the House of Representatives, in an Instagram post on Sunday, breaking his long-standing reluctance to influence politics.
"In the past I have been reluctant to publicly express my political views, but due to various events in my life and in the world over the past two years, I feel very different about it now," he wrote in the post.
His publication focused on his opposition to Blackburn, whose voting record Swift said "scares me and terrifies me."
"She voted against equal pay for women, and she voted against the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, which tries to protect women from domestic violence, harassment and dating violations. that companies have the right to refuse service to homosexual couples. "He also believes that they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will vote for Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives, "Swift wrote.
