Trump was asked about Swift’s decision to wade into politics as he returned to Washington after a trip to Florida.

Swift announced Sunday she’s voting for Democrat Phil Bredesen for Senate, breaking her long-standing refusal to discuss anything politics.

Trump says GOP Congressman Marsha Blackburn, Bredesen’s rival, is “doing a very good job” and is a “tremendous woman.”
