Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have become so well-known that even a past President has spoken about them.
Donald Trump, a former president and current presidential candidate, commented on the Kelce-Swift romance, saying to the Daily Caller website:
“I wish the best for both of them. I hope they enjoy their life, maybe together, maybe not — most likely not,”

NBC trying to cash in on the Swifties
This weekend, the NFL is promoting Sunday Night Football in full Swiftie mode. Prior to Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets, they unveiled an advertisement with a Taylor Swift theme that featured the singer’s hit song, “Welcome to New York.”
At the MetLife Stadium, where she played three sold-out shows of her Eras Tour this year, Swift is anticipated to attend the game on Sunday.
Sunday’s viewing of Sunday Night Football increased as Swift was spotted supporting Kelce as his team thrashed the Chicago Bears 41-10. With 24.3 million viewers, the game had the best audience rating of any network for the week, according to FOX Sports.
Now, NBC is hoping she gives them at least that much.
Sales of Kelce’s “87” jersey increased 400% on Sunday, which has helped Kelce’s stock climb as well. This connection seems to be advantageous to everyone. The NFL never has a problem with ratings, but if Swift can attract a completely new fan base, it can only be beneficial for the future.
