Taylor Swift threw her support behind Joe Biden for president.

The pop superstar told her 200 million-plus followers that the veteran Democrat will start a “healing process” in America.

The singer-songwriter has lashed out before at President Donald Trump. She blasted his “ineffective leadership” against the coronavirus pandemic and his efforts to “subvert and destroy” US voting rights. Swift’s remarks in a magazine article she posted on Instagram and Twitter was her first formal declaration of support for Biden. “Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first,” she says.

“I will proudly vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in this year’s presidential election,” she added. “Under their leadership, I believe America has a chance to start the healing process because it desperately needs that.”

“Taylor — Thanks for your support and for speaking out at this crucial moment in our nation’s history,” Biden tweeted.
Swift made waves in 2018 when she endorsed Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee and said the voting record of the Republican U.S. Senate candidate, Marsha Blackburn, “appalls and terrifies me.”
“I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love,” Swift said at the time.
