Taylor Swift on Friday tore into President Trump for threatening “shooting” in response to protesting and looting in Minneapolis, accusing him of “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism” throughout his time in office.

“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence?” Swift wrote on Twitter.

“‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November.”

The fierce condemnation came after Trump lashed out at demonstrators in Minneapolis amid the protests over the death of George Floyd in police custody, warning that he would send National Guard troops to the city and that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.”

The president has faced widespread criticism for the remarks and has been accused of threatening violence against American citizens from top Democrats including Hillary Clinton and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Twitter slapped a warning label on the tweet from Trump and the official White House accounts, saying the rhetoric violates the platform’s rules against glorifying violence. 

The remarks from the “Lover” singer marks her first public tweet directed at the president since she has became a vocal opponent of his. 

Taylor……Not a single person over the age of 15 gives a shit about what you think!
