Donald Trump likes Taylor Swift's music 'about 25 per cent less' after her Democratic endorsement

President Donald Trump says he likes superstar Taylor Swift's music "about 25 per cent less now" that she's endorsed two Democratic candidates in Tennessee.

Today Mr Trump was asked about Swift's Instagram post yesterday in which she urged Americans to vote.

Swift announced she's voting for Democrat Phil Bredesen for Senate, breaking her long-standing refusal to discuss anything politics.

Mr Trump says GOP Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, Mr Bredesen's rival, is "doing a very good job" and is a "tremendous woman."

And he says that Swift "doesn't know anything about her," adding: "I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, OK?"

Swift has faced criticism for not speaking about political issues despite having a global platform.

She also said she'd vote for Democrat Jim Cooper for the House.
