Caitlyn Jenner Slams Trump Administration Over Its Handling Of Trans Issues
Former Olympic athlete Caitlyn Jenner seems to be changing his mind when it comes to the Trump administration.
Jenner believes President Donald Trump’s administration has been the worst so far when it comes to dealing with transgender issues, according to Newsweek.
“As far as trans issues, this administration has been the worst ever,” Jenner explained to Newsweek while at a New York City gala. “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.”
Jenner, a long time Republican, previously supported the president during the 2016 campaign, but slowly grew more upset with the president after his decision to prevent trans people from joining the military and his signing an executive order on trans bathrooms.

“Over the past two years I have met the most inspiring trans people, and I can testify to the trans community’s incredible resilience and perseverance in the face of enormous discrimination and hate. We are strong, we are beautiful, and we will win,” Jenner wrote in a July 2017 letter on the president’s military decision. “The President must ask himself which side of history he will be on — and reverse his position immediately.”
