Taylor Swift has riled up her fanbase by taking aim at President Donald Trump over his controversial threats of violence towards the people of Minneapolis.

Swift is the latest in a swag of celebrities to denounce Trump over his comments following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police in the city earlier this week.

“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence?” the singer-songwriter tweeted.

“‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump,” she wrote.

Billboard reports that the tweet is now Taylor Swift’s most successful post on the website, reaching one million likes in less than five hours. At the time of writing it has 1.4 million likes and 370,000 retweets.

It came as a response to two tweets posted by Trump earlier this week addressing the situation in Minneapolis, following riots as people in the city protested the death of Floyd. The President firstly threatened to send in the national guard to “get the job done right.”

Then, in his second tweet, he threatened to use the military to start shooting the protestors, using the phrase “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” The tweet was deemed to have violated Twitter Rules about glorifying violence, and was hidden behind a view button.

The line was a quote from former Miami Police Chief Walter Headley, who used the line in 1967 as a response to protests over stop-and-frisk tactics by police.

It’s the second time in the space of the last month where Swift has spoken up in response to police brutality towards people of colour in the USA.

“I’m absolutely devastated and horrified by the senseless, cold blooded, racially motivated killing of Ahmaud Arbery,” she wrote, of the 25-year-old black man was fatally shot by two white men in Georgia in February.

Taylor Swift’s new documentary Miss Americana was released in January this year, after its release date was pushed back when Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta prevented the singer from using her own music in the film.
