Popular American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has explained that her decision not to back Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid back in 2016 is something she now regrets.
In an exclusive interview with The Guardian, Swift said that she was dealing with a host of personal issues back then, including her mother’s cancer relapse and a row with rap star Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian.
Swift confessed that she felt "really remorseful for not saying anything," adding that she would have endorsed Hillary otherwise.
But many social media users were unimpressed by Taylor’s revelations, openly doubting the power of her endorsement.
Taylor can go ahead and endorse Hillary now. It'll have the very same effect.— BoSox Fan in VA (@KennethMoura) 23 августа 2019 г.

Wow she really thinks people care who she endorses remember 2018 Senate races.— Jennifer Laird (@Jennife46132296) 23 августа 2019 г.
So Hillary lost because Taylor Swift didn't endorse her?? Lol! You're not that relevant 🙄— Make America Great Again 🇺🇸 (@sayitnspinit) 23 августа 2019 г.
This development comes after the singer told Vogue that she sought to steer clear of politics three years ago due to concerns that her reputation might have harmed Hillary’s presidential campaign.
