Earlier in her career, singer and songwriter Taylor Swift took a neutral stance on politics which garnered criticism from her detractors and some of her fans.
But by 2018 the young woman had enough of the political climate in the United States.
For the first time in her career, Swift endorsed candidates for office during the midterm elections. For the 2020 election, Swift is making her opinion known early.
On Friday, May 29—with 157 days until the election—Swift took to Twitter to post:
"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 [President Trump]."
People applauded Swift's response to the President's tweet threatening the protestors in Minneapolis.
The response included more than a few famous faces.
Within hours, the post broke the record for Swift's most liked tweet.
Her post clearly resonated.
Hopefully in November people will remember the passion her message evoked—whether they agreed or were angered by it—and vote.
