• Donald Trump warned the people that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts"
  • Taylor Swift reacted to the tweet made by the White House 
  • Twitter users have a mixed reaction on how Swift called out the POTUS

Taylor Swift recently fired back at one of Donald Trump's tweets, and her response got mixed reactions from Twitter users.

Swift and Trump’s tweets were connected to George Floyd’s death. Floyd’s demise sparked protest due to the way the white police officer arrested him. Floyd was cooperative, but the officer pinned him down and kneeled on his neck for several minutes.

Floyd begged for his life and told the officer that he couldn’t breathe. However, the officer refused to let him go until he was unresponsive. Floyd was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

The protest turned into a chaos when the protesters burned the police office in Minneapolis. The violence prompted the POTUS to warn the public.

In a tweet made by The White House, Trump said that what the thugs did was a dishonor to Floyd. He also said that he already talked to Governor Tim Walz to inform him that the military is on his back.

“Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” the post concluded.

The “Reputation” singer reacted with disgust and attacked the POTUS.

“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump,” Swift wrote on Twitter.

However, many also fired back at Swift. According to some Twitter users, the “Shake It Off” hitmaker should have just stick to her line, which is music.

“Stick to music, please,” Ian Miles Cheong wrote.

“You’ve lost a lot of fans T S. Must be nice to live out of the normal every day struggles of the American people while you sit high and judge others. I’ve brought my girls to several of your concerts, never again,” @rconner77 added.

Meanwhile, another attacked Swift and alleged that the Grammy winner had a hard time pulling it off because she is in her 30s and her fans are 14-year-old girls. A different user claimed that Swift was suffering from TDS or Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Several also defended Swift from those who dismissed her opinion.

“Taylor Swift needs to stick to music and stop tweeting about politics, but it's totally okay for a game show host with no experience in government to be president,“ @FriendOfTheYeti wrote.

Furthermore, many said that they are already in their 30s and they still listen to Swift’s music. Another online user said that she has been following Swift since she was 18 and has been a fan for 10 years.

Some also thanked Swift for standing up for the people.

“Thank you Taylor Swift, he is loosing support and we will vote him out in November, and your voice can reach out to people, continue speaking out,” David Weissman commented.

Meanwhile, Twitter added a note on the White House’s post that it violated the Twitter rules. However, the post was not removed for the public’s interest.

“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the notification read.
