Country music icon Shania Twain says she “would have voted for” President Donald Trump if she were an American citizen, admitting that “he seemed honest” during the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton.
In an interview with The Guardian, Twain — a Canadian citizen — said she would have supported Trump in the election against Clinton because she does not “want bullshit” in politics.
“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest.Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both,” Twain told the outlet during a candid interview. “If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit,” she said. “I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”
After receiving backlash, Twain took to Twitter to explain herself. The Canadian says she wasn’t prepared for the question and was trying to express how Trump had connected with a certain segment of the U.S population.
