“In order for policies to change, we need to elect people who will fight against police brutality and racism of any kind, ” she added. “#BlackLivesMatter.”

“This article written by @BarackObama is a fascinating read about changing policy at the state and local levels,” the “Shake It Off” hitmaker tweeted.

Swift also tweeted an article calling for the need for “mail-in voting for the 2020 election. No one should have to choose between their health and having their voice heard.”

Last month, the “Me!” hitmaker accused President Donald Trump of “stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism” his “entire presidency.”

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