Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. At age 14, Swift became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house and, at 15, she signed her first record deal.
Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the US. Its third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008.
Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", it became the US' best-selling album of 2009 and was certified diamond in the US. The album won four Grammy Awards, and Swift became the youngest Album of the Year winner.
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality. Trump was born and raised in the New York City borough of Queens, and received a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School. He took charge of his family's real-estate business in 1971, renamed it The Trump Organization, and expanded its operations from Queens and Brooklyn into Manhattan.
The company built or renovated skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses. Trump later started various side ventures, mostly by licensing his name. He owned the Miss Universe and Miss USA beauty pageants from 1996 to 2015, and produced and hosted The Apprentice, a reality television show, from 2003 to 2015. Forbes estimates his net worth to be $3.1 billion.
Donald Trump has claimed that he’s made Taylor Swift “so much money” in her career.The former US president made the statement in a social media post Sunday (February 11), in an apparent response to reports that Joe Biden is seeking endorsement from the pop star to swing the next election.“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists.
Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will,” he wrote on his Truth Social platform.“There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money.”Trump added: “Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”While Trump signed the Music Modernization Act (MMA) into law in 2018, Swift wasn’t a major beneficiary.Without commenting on electoral politics…1) Taylor wasn't really a huge beneficiary of the Music Modernization act.
