Trump responded to the idea that Taylor Swift might endorse Joe Biden for president by privately claiming that he is more popular than the biggest musician on the planet.
Behind the scenes, Trump has reacted to the possibility of Biden and Swift teaming up against him this year not with alarm, but with an instant projection of ego. In recent weeks, the former president has told people in his orbit that no amount of A-list celebrity endorsements will save Biden. Trump has also privately claimed that he is “more popular” than Swift is and that he has more committed fans than she does, a person close to Trump and another source with knowledge of the matter tell Rolling Stone.
Last month, the source close to Trump adds, the ex-president commented to some confidants that it “obviously” made no sense that he was not named Time magazine’s 2023 Person of the Year — an honor that went to none other than Swift in December.

The Swifties are an army of sweet people, and if this is your first time visiting PoliticusUSA, welcome. We’re happy to have you.
If Donald Trump and his band of incel insurrections, who, by the way, can’t handle Nikki Haley without having a total meltdown, think that they can be more popular than Taylor Swift, they are more than wrong. They are delusional.
