Caitlyn Jenner said Donald Trump has proved to be a disappointing president when it comes to LGBT issues.

“He looked like he would be pretty good on all LGBT issues, which is important because my loyalties do no lie with Donald Trump,” Jenner said during an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday. “My loyalties do not lie with the Republican party. My loyalties and what I’m fighting for is my community — the LGBT community. That’s where my fight is.”

“I thought Trump would be pretty good, but he’s disappointed me in the first 100 days on those issues.”

Carlson why Jenner didn’t just vote for Hillary Clinton, “who is obviously strong on LGBT issues.”

“I’m not a one issue voter,” Jenner said. “I believe in limited government. I believe in the Constitution. I would rather convince the Republican party to do a better job when it comes to all LGBT issues than to try to convince the Democrats to lower taxes and lower regulations and let our country thrive financially.”

Carlson asked if there is pressure to be a one issue voter in the LGBT community.

“I totally agree with you,” Jenner said. “A lot of people in our community are. From that stand, it’s been pretty tough.”
