Singer Taylor Swift could play a key role in the 2020 presidential election, a Republican strategist explained on MSNBC on Saturday.

Swift has been public in her criticism of President Donald Trump and told Vanity Fair she is intent to “do everything I can for 2020.”

“At the same time, Taylor Swift did to something very good, urging people to register to vote months before the election,” he noted. “A lot of young people did that.”

“She’s interested in politics and she’s going to do everything she can — let’s not forget the election in 2016 really was won by 77,744 votes, and that’s the margin of difference in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan,” he explained.

“If she can get 10,000, 15,000 people registered who didn’t vote in 2016 — combined with other efforts — that will help,” Siegfried said.

Hayes questioned Harris about her call for Twitter to follow their terms of service and kick President Donald Trump off of the platform.

"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.

"Absolutely," Harris replied.

"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.

"Does it matter?" Harris replied.

"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."
