Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift condemns President Trump’s efforts to disable the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and limit mail-in voting.
“Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: 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 wrote on Twitter last weekend.
Swift’s remark comes after Trump said he would not be releasing any money for the agency.
However, a day later, Trump said he would “accept Democrats’ request for $25 billion for the postal service, including billions to bolster mail-in voting, if they were willing to bow on some of his concessions,” Fox News reported.
“Sure, if they give us what we want,” Trump said in a press conference. “And it's not what I want, it's what the American people want.”
On Thursday, Trump blamed Democrats for holding up a deal on another coronavirus relief package, Fox News said.
“The items are the post office and the $3.5 billion for mail-in voting,” Trump told Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo. “If we don’t make the deal, that means can’t have the money, that means they can’t have universal mail-in voting. It just can’t happen.”
Swift then said in a follow-up tweet that the president’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,” Swift added
