Grammy-winning singer James Taylor slammed President Trump in a Monday fundraising email for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, calling Trump “a puffed-up, self-absorbed, all-hat-and-no-cattle cowboy.”

“I don’t say this lightly, but it’s become more and more clear that Donald Trump is an inept and corrupt narcissist. And rather than facing the challenge of leading America through a national crisis, he’s refused to take responsibility and started lashing out at others,” Taylor said in the email to Biden supporters. 

“We can’t afford four more years of a man who cares more about his own power and celebrity than he does about the health and success of our country,” Taylor added. 

The musician lauded Biden as the “kind of leader we need right now” and urged people to “stay in this fight” and donate to his campaign. 

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign was not immediately available for comment. 

Recent polls have shown Biden leading or neck and neck with Trump in key battleground states and holding consistent leads nationwide. Biden and Trump are statistically tied in Arizona and Texas, and Biden is leading the president in Florida, according to a CBS News/YouGov poll released Sunday. 

A separate Dallas Morning News-University of Texas-Tyler poll released Sunday found Biden with a 5-point lead over Trump in Texas, which hasn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate in more than 40 years.
