A new book about 'The Apprentice' tells us what Trump thinks about Taylor Swift

  • Taylor Swift endorsed Joe Biden in 2020, but Donald Trump is still a Swift fan.

  • "I think she's very beautiful, actually, unusually beautiful!" Trump said about her in an interview in November.

  • Trump's quote is slated to appear in a forthcoming book about "The Apprentice."

Donald Trump is a Swiftie.

Well, sort of.

The former president fawned over Taylor Swift in an interview with Variety's Ramin Setoodeh in November.

The remarks are set to be published in Setoodeh's forthcoming book about Trump's hit reality television series "The Apprentice." Variety published a preview of the book — and Trump's quote — on Monday.

"I think she's beautiful, very beautiful! I find her very beautiful. I think she's liberal. She probably doesn't like Trump. I hear she's very talented," Trump said of Swift, per Variety.

"I think she's very beautiful, actually, unusually beautiful!" he continued.

Representatives for Trump and Swift did not immediately respond to requests for comment from BI sent outside regular business hours.

This isn't the first time Trump has gushed about Swift.

In 2012, Trump tweeted about taking a "beautiful picture" with Swift. He also sounded elated when Swift was announced as the co-host of that year's Grammy nominations television special.

However, Trump's views of Swift have wavered over the years, particularly when Swift has spoken out against him or the GOP.

When Swift voiced her opposition against Tennessee Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn in 2018, Trump expressed his disappointment in the singer.

"I'm sure Taylor Swift doesn't know anything about her and let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, okay?" Trump told reporters at the time.

Swift, for her part, slammed Trump's leadership before publicly endorsing his rival Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

Swift has yet to endorse a presidential candidate for this year's election, but she remains influential in the political sphere.

In September, Swift helped Vote.org reach its most successful Voter Registration Day since 2020 after she posted an Instagram story urging her followers to register.

Setoodeh's book, "Apprentice in Wonderland," is set to be released on June 18.
