Taylor Swift's stunning revelation about her preferences in the upcoming midterm elections didn't go unnoticed by Donald Trump who said he will like her songs "about 25 percent less" now. He also responded to her comments on Republican Senator from Tennessee Marsha Blackburn by saying "Swift doesn't know anything" about Blackburn and expressed support for the Republican.
POTUS' comments sparked intense reaction from social media users. Many of them suggested it was unlikely that the US president even knew any of her songs.
Which Taylor Swift tunes can Trump name?— Ed Darrell (@EdDarrell) October 9, 2018
Trump's a musical ignoramus. Wouldn't be shocked that he listens only to Wagner, and only because he thinks Wagner was Hitler's favorite.
But on low volume, Trump's brain is unswayed and untouched by music. It's a source of dysfunction. https://t.co/7hfLgsikQf
Others however thought otherwise, suggesting the president would be saying goodbye to her songs with a heavy heart.
I like to imagine that Donald Trump is silently crying as he removes the Taylor Swift posters from the oval office walls— sharon (@JacksonDuvall) October 9, 2018
Some noted though that Trump never said he would stop listening to the pop singer, despite her support for the Democrats.

Several Twitter users commented on POTUS' remarks, suggesting the feeling was mutual and that Swift's not fond of Trump either.
I'm sure the feeling is mutual, in fact she may not like you @realDonaldTrump at all. You are an example of everything that is wrong in American politics today.— Kathmandu (@NCattman) October 9, 2018

Some Twitterians wondered if Trump was going to attack Swift now that she had revealed her political preferences.

One Twitter user suggested that the US president is just jealous of the pop singer.

"US voter registration spikes and Trump responds after Taylor Swift urges fans to vote" https://t.co/jz74erHrjo
Taylor Swift, who has been keeping her political preferences secret, recently broke her silence and shared that she wouldn't be supporting a female Republican candidate from Tennessee in the congressional midterm elections in November, claiming the politician doesn't correspond to her values and accused her of failing to support bills, protecting women's rights.
Swift also said she will support Democrats in both the Senate and House of Representatives and urged her fans (she has some 112 million followers on her Instagram) from the US to register for the upcoming elections and cast their votes for the candidates they like the most.
