In an interview with The Guardian published on Sunday, the country singer said that even though she thought Trump had flaws, she would have supported him because she saw him as an honest person.
“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest,” Twain told The Guardian. “Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both.”
“If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent,” Twain added. “And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”
Twain released her fifth album last year after a 15-year lull, and will kick off a tour next month.
