A former Trump White House aide was reportedly told to stop playing Taylor Swift‘s music after a tough meeting because the star wasn’t ‘a fan’ of the president and it could get her ‘fired.’ 

Olivia Troye, who worked as an aide for former Vice President Mike Pence, 62, came from a stressful meeting and started playing Taylor Swift’s music in her office when a colleague knocked on her door and asked her to be ‘careful’ what she played. 

‘I remember a moment in the spring where I came back very angry after a meeting where I lost an argument with someone [over] something I didn’t agree with related to the pandemic, and I came back and was playing Taylor Swift very loud in my office that night,’ she told MSNBC.

She told MSNBC that the colleague asked if she wanted to get fired and that she 'should be careful' about the music she plays since Swift isn't a fan of former President Donald Trump, 75

‘And I had a colleague knock on the door and he said “are you trying to get fired?” and I was super confused about that and I was like “for being blunt in meetings or for what?”‘ 

The colleague reportedly replied: ‘Well I don’t think [Taylor’s] a fan of Trump’s, so if someone hears that you should really watch your back, you should be careful on that.’ 

Troye admitted she was ‘astonished’ and that she could ‘listen to whatever music’ she wanted. 

In another incident, reported by The Atlantic, an unidentified staffer liked Swift’s Instagram post encouraging her followers to vote and a later post of Swift, 31, holding a tray of cookies with Biden-Harris written on the baked goods. 

Although the staffer liked all of Swift’s posts, regardless of whether they had anything to do with politics, Mark Meadows – Trump’s Chief of Staff – reportedly received a phone call about it while he attended the Supreme Court confirmation of conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett. 

The 31-year-old publicly denounced Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn and actively campaigned for President Joe Biden. She was later seen backstage at the AMAs laughing about Trump liking her music less after the statement in her Netflix documentary Ms. Americana

Trump told the media that he likes ‘Taylor’s music about 25 per cent less now’ after her public comments on Blackburn, who he endorsed 

Top staff Andrew Hughes is said to have reported the ‘like’ to him. 

‘We really can’t have our people liking posts promoting Joe Biden,’ Meadows reportedly told Hughes, according to the Atlantic

Trump, 75, has publicly announced his distaste for the country-darling-turned-global-popstar.

‘Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 per cent less now, okay,’ Trump said after Taylor denounced Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn, who he endorsed. 

Later, in her Netflix documentary Ms. Americana, Swift was seen laughing backstage as she got ready for the American Music Awards in 2018 about the comment. 

She also publicly supported the Equality Act and mentioned it throughout several of her award winning speeches through the award season. 

She also released a political song called Only The Young in connection with the documentary’s release that encourages the young to vote and get political.
