Taylor Swift says she is voting for the Democratic Party in next month’s U.S. presidential election.
“I will proudly vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in this year’s presidential election,” the singer said, to V magazine. “Under their leadership, I believe America has a chance to start the healing process it so desperately needs.”
Swift explained: “The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of colour deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included.
“Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them.”
I spoke to @vmagazine about why I’ll be voting for Joe Biden for president. So apt that it’s come out on the night of the VP debate. Gonna be watching and supporting @KamalaHarris by yelling at the tv a lot. And I also have custom cookies 🍪💪😘
