Caitlyn Jenner said the Trans community is being “relentlessly attacked” by President Donald Trump and has labelled her beliefs of working alongside Trump a “mistake”.
Jenner backtracked on her support for Donald Trump in detail for her Washington Post’s Opinion article published on the 25th October.
Bruce Jenner (a lifelong conservative) transitioned to Caitlin in 2015, which was met with a warm embrace from the LGBTQ+ community. However, her support of Donald Trump the following year left those very people who had supported her conflicted.
Jenner got on board with the ‘Make America Great Again’ (MAGA) campaign after Trump claimed to support the Trans community. Following the 2016 shooting of a homosexual nightclub in Orlando, Trump promised to protect LGBT+ Americans from terrorism.
However, following proposals to strip Transgender Students from using bathrooms that best suit their gender identity and banning transgender people from serving in the military due to costs, his pledge has become questionable.
The majority of the LGBTQ+ community has responded to Jenner’s backpedalling with sounds of “I told you so”.
