Caitlyn Jenner, who has been silent since Donald Trump withdrew Obama-era guidance withdrew Obama-era guidelines instructing schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom in accordance with their gender identity, posted a message for Donald Trump to her Instagram account last night.
Jenner supported Ted Cruz for president during the campaign, saying she wanted to be his ambassador for transgender issues, blasted Hillary Clinton as a “f**king liar”, and pulled a bathroom stunt at Trump Tower in Manhattan in an attempt to show how trans-inclusive Trump really is.
Jenner sees herself as a change maker within the Republican Party for LGBT people.
Last December, Jenner met with Samantha Power, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, who praised her for efforts to raise the profile of transgender people.
Jenner suggested that she’s “comfortable” with the issues here in the U.S., a remark that didn’t sit well with trans activists here who have called her “an insult to trans women” and claim that because of her privilege, wealth and fame she is out of touch with the discrimination, poverty, and marginalization issues faced by transgender women day to day.
Of course, after claiming that she advocates for the trans community, Jenner has said still voted for the anti-LGBT GOP in 2016 despite a slate of candidates who were vocal and expressive about their opposition to LGBT issues.
