Shania Twain, who was not able to vote in the 2016 United States presidential election, has opened up about why she supported Donald Trump. At the time, there was a lot of backlash for Twain due to her support for Trump, especially because of the moral issues that he has had throughout the years.
In a recent statement made to E! News, Twain apologized to anyone she may have offended and opened up more about why she supported Trump and stated that she would have voted for him.
"I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context. I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it's clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President. I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician. My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows."
Obviously, this statement is not going to satisfy quite a few Trump haters. Having a woman support Trump is not something that is seen too often and many times the women that do support Trump are bashed and harassed because of their decision.
