Caitlyn Jenner tweets President Donald Trump about LGBTQ rights: "This is a disaster"
UPI News Service, 02/24/2017
Caitlyn Jenner has taken to social media to call out President Donald Trump concerning LGBTQ rights in light of his administration's decision to roll back on guidelines that give transgender students the right to use whichever public restroom they are most comfortable with.
"I have a message for President Trump from well, one Republican to another. This is a disaster," Jenner says speaking to the camera in a video posted to Twitter Thursday.
"And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community," the reality star continues. "Call me."
Jenner also left a message for transgender kids in the video and took a shot at Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
"I have a message for the trans kids of America. You're winning. I know it doesn't feel like it today or every day, but you're winning. Very soon we will win full freedom nationwide and it's going to be with bipartisan support. You can help by checking out the National Center for Transgender Equality and letting Washington hear you loud and clear," she said.
"Now I have a message for the bullies: You're sick. And because you're weak, you pick on kids, you pick on women or anyone else you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming the attorney general isn't enough to cure some people of their insecurities."
A noted Trump supporter, Jenner previously expressed in an interview with STAT how she felt Trump would help the LGBTQ community.
"Trump seems to be very much for women. He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue," the 67-year-old said to the magazine in June.

In April, Jenner had documented on social media her ability as a trans woman to use the women's restroom inside Trump Tower in light of the North Carolina law which requires people to use the bathroom that corresponds with the sex stated on their birth certificate.
The move came after Trump had declared that transgender people should be able to use whichever bathroom they want.
"People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble," the former "The Apprentice" star said at the time on "Today."
