SINGER songwriter Taylor Swift slammed President Donald Trump on Twitter and accused of him trying to “blatantly cheat” in the 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 tweeted on Saturday. “He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”

Swift added that Trumps “ineffective leadership” has worsened the current crisis and he is trying to “destroy our right to vote and vote safely.”
The pop star advised her followers to request a ballot early and to vote early.
Her tweets came after the president said Thursday he’s blocking the $2trillion stimulus package put forth by Democrats because it allots $25billion in emergency funding to the US Postal Service, which he said was “election money” for mail-in ballots.
Speaking on Fox News’s Mornings with Maria, Trump said: “That’s election money basically.
“If they don’t get those two items, that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting.”
Trump continued: “Now, if we don’t make a deal, that means they don’t get the money. That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting. They just can’t have it.”
Regardless of his criticism of mail-in voting, Trump and first lady Melania Trump requested mail-in ballots for the Florida congressional primary.
This is not the first time Swift has fired at Trump.
She criticized the president in May, accusing him of “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism”, The Hill reported.
A behind-the-scenes clip from the Netflix documentary, “Miss Americana” showed Swift talking of actively working against Trump.
When her publicist warned her of the consequences of speaking out against the president she said “F–k that. I don’t care.”
