Former President Donald Trump pondered whether singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is actually liberal.

Variety co-editor-in-chief Ramin Setoodeh asked Trump about Swift during a November 2023 interview for his forthcoming book, “Apprentice in Wonderland: How Donald Trump and Mark Burnett Took America Through the Looking Glass.”

“I think she’s beautiful — very beautiful! I find her very beautiful. I think she’s liberal. She probably doesn’t like Trump. I hear she’s very talented,” Trump said. “I think she’s very beautiful, actually — unusually beautiful!”

Variety reported on Monday that Trump also questioned whether Swift has been putting on a show when it comes to her politics.

“She is liberal, or is that just an act?” Trump asked Setoodeh. “She’s legitimately liberal? It’s not an act? It surprises me that a country star can be successful being liberal.”

When Setoodeh noted that Swift has not released a country album since “Red” in 2012, Trump replied, “Garth Brooks is liberal. Explain that! How does it happen?”

Trump opined about Swift in a February post to Truth Social right before the singer showed up at the Super Bowl to watch her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, play in the game.

At the time, some “MAGA” enthusiasts speculated that Swift got into a relationship with Kelce as part of a political scheme or “op” in which the music star might endorse President Joe Biden during the Super Bowl or in the months that followed.


“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists. Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will,” Trump said.

Trump quipped that there was “no way” Swift could endorse Biden, whom he described as corrupt, “and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money.”

He added, “Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”

Swift has yet to back a presidential candidate in the 2024 contest, but she did endorse Biden in the run-up to the 2020 election and shared a photo of herself holding a plate of cookies decorated to show support for the Democrat ticket.
