In her first sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer since announcing her transition two years ago, Caitlyn Jenner has some choice words for Republican lawmakers and the commander-in-chief.
This may come as a shock to many, considering that Jenner has remained a staunch supporter of her party throughout her transition.
Although she openly voted for and supported Trump, the “I am Cait” star is now saying that trans equality is a “deal breaker.”
“You mess with my community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you,” Jenner said in a sneak peek of the interview, which will air April 21 on ABC.
Jenner stated the need for “federal guidance,” applauding the Obama admin’s policy allowing trans people to serve in the military. Has Jenner become … a Democrat?
Maybe not quite yet. She does seem to be falling off the Trump bandwagon, however, saying that she’s reconsidered an offer the president extended to her at an Inauguration cocktail party to join him for a game of golf.
“At that time I thought it was a pretty good idea,” Jenner said. “But since Title IX [Trump’s revocation of guidelines allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of their choosing], it’s not a good idea, and so I won’t be playing golf with him.”
