Former President Donald Trump has shared his thoughts on the budding relationship between pop sensation Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce as interest grows surrounding the matter.
In an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller, Trump offered his perspective on whether he believes this newfound romance will stand the test of time.
“I wish the best for both of them. I hope they enjoy their life, maybe together, maybe not — most likely not,” he remarked.

The former president’s remarks come amid a media frenzy surrounding the alleged love affair between the country-pop singer and one of the NFL’s most prominent figures.
Swift’s recent appearance at a Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears game has added fuel to the fire of speculation as images of her passionately cheering on her rumored beau while seated next to Kelce’s mother, Donna, quickly went viral. Further intensifying the intrigue, the pair was spotted leaving Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium together after the game.
Trump’s well wishes for these two stars mark a shift in their relationship as Swift had been a vocal critic of the former president during his time in office.
In the midst of the George Floyd protests in 2020, the singer took to social media to condemn him, stating, “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’???”
In an earlier post that same year, Swift accused Trump of attempting to manipulate the 2020 presidential election. “Trump’s calculated dismantling of USPS proves one thing clearly: He is WELL AWARE that we do not want him as our president. He’s chosen to blatantly cheat and put millions of Americans’ lives at risk in an effort to hold on to power,” she asserted.
Trump is also not a huge fan of the singer based on his comments about her in the past. During Swift’s public opposition to the election of Senator Marsha Blackburn in 2018, he humorously quipped, “I’m sure Taylor Swift has nothing, or doesn’t know anything about her. And let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 percent less now, okay?”
A recent Washington Post column by contributing columnist Rick Reilly sought to accentuate the tension between Taylor, Kelce, and Trump, as it read, “I want K-Tay to stick for one very good reason: They’re both loathed by right-wingers. She, for openly standing up against Donald Trump and for abortion rights. He, for appearing in coronavirus vaccine ads and taking a knee during the national anthem, the highest-profile White NFL player to do so.”
“In fact, if anybody should be worried about K-Tay, it’s Trump. These two have fan bases that are huge and devoted,” Reilly continued, hinting at the potential influence of this dynamic duo on the upcoming elections.
