Taylor Swift just came for Donald Trump on Twitter and it’s got everyone talking.

The “Cardigan” singer took to the social media platform to accuse the POTUS of “dismantling” the US Postal Service and rallied against his “ineffective leadership” during the coronavirus pandemic.

Her call to action? “Vote early”.

Tweeting on Saturday evening, Swift alleged:

She then followed it up with:

The tweets clearly struck a chord with people on Twitter, amassing over 650,000 likes on the former and 335,000 likes on the latter – at the time of writing.

They’re impressive figures, considering they’ve only been online for less than a day.

Twitter users flooded the replies with their love and support for Swift’s sentiments:

Earlier this week, Trump threatened to reduce funding to the USPS because of mail-in voting.

In a press conference, Trump confirmed that he was withholding aid for Covid-19 for states that have been particularly badly hit because he was trying to put pressure on the Democrats over mail-in voting.

He's also previously been accused of spreading misinformation about mail-in voting for the 2020 elections over the last few months – with Twitter even putting fact-checks on some of his more misleading tweets.

Trump has yet to publicly address Swift's tweets but it’s unlikely to make him very happy if a previous altercation is anything to go by.

In 2018, Taylor Swift endorsed Democrat Phil Bredesen over Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn, who she said “appalls and terrifies" her.

Trump responded at the time:

I’m sure Taylor Swift doesn’t know anything about [Blackburn]. I like Taylor’s music about 25 per cent less now, OK?

Real mature.
