At the Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala in New York, she told Newsweek,
“As far as trans issues, this administration has been the worst ever… They’ve set our community back 20 years, easily. It’s going to be hard to change, but we’ve been through these types of things before, and we’ll continue to fight it.“
She further said that she had,
“built some very nice and good relationships with the Republican party. I have not been back to see Trump.”
She went to Trump’s inauguration, but three months later in an interview with People, Jenner said her loyalties were,
“with my community and not with the Republican party, and not with Donald Trump.”
In July she told The View that she had met with members of Trump’s cabinet on because she was disappointed with the president’s view on issues important to the queer community.
Less than a month later she was seen wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat while driving in L.A. and the internet roasted her. She later apologized, telling TMZ,
“I will never do it again and I’m getting rid of the hat.”
She said that she’d like Trump to
“do a better job when it comes to equality. We’re all Americans.”
Good luck with that. But Jenner has the right to say whatever she wants. We are in America where free speech is still valued, so, don’t tell her to STFU. I’m saddened and embarrassed by the hate spewed out on her Instagram.
But, Caitlyn, you might be able to redeem yourself as a woman, a member of the LGBT community and an American, if you denounced the political party you seem hell-bent on supporting. They are telling you by their actions, there is no place for you or LGBTQ people (or women, or people of color, or immigrants) in it.
Ditch the GOP, Caitlyn.
