Taylor Swift: Trump 'is Well Aware We Do NOT Want Him as Our President’
Pop star blasts Trump over his criticisms of USPS and mail-in voting
Pop star Taylor Swift has blasted Donald Trump, claiming he's against mail-in voting because "he is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president."
The singer-come-Democratic Party activist is attacking President Trump after he raised concerns about the U.S. Postal Service handling a vote-by-mail election.
Swift claims that her president is against mail-in voting because he is trying to cheat his way to victory in November by “dismantling” the beleaguered federal agency.
“Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly,” Swift said Saturday on Twitter.
“He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president.
"He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power.”
Swift alleges that her point is proved by Trump's "calculated dismantling of USPS."

She is also accusing President Trump of “taking advantage” of the COVID-19 pandemic to “subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely.”
Donald Trump’s ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely. Request a ballot early. Vote early.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) August 15, 2020
Despite the unsubstantiated allegations in Swift's tweets, at the time of publishing, Twitter has failed to "fact check" her salacious claims in the same way the company would do to posts from conservative figures.
The U.S. Postal Service warned 46 states last week that it could not guarantee that all mail-in ballots cast for the presidential election would arrive on time.
The agency continues to lose billions of dollars annually, recently saying that it lost $2.2 billion in the three months ending in June.
The president has repeatedly criticized the Democrats’ push for vote-by-mail as a scam to hurt Republicans, saying that it will lead to a “catastrophic situation” in November.
Taylor Swift, who has been busy promoting her latest album Folklore, recently accused President Trump of “stoking the fires of white supremacy,” telling the commander in chief that “we will vote you out in November.”
She also blasted the U.S. Census Bureau for failing to include a category for non-binary and transgender people on the latest census form.
It “was so upsetting to me, the erasure of transgender and nonbinary people,” she said.
