Caitlyn Jenner: Donald Trump Is “Very Much” For LGBT And Women
“Everybody looks at the Democrats as being better with these issues. But Trump seems to be very much for women,” she tells the medical publication Stat in an interview published on Wednesday. “He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue. He backed the LGBT community.”
Still, Jenner acknowledges, “But in Trump’s case, there’s a lot more unknowns. With Hillary [Clinton], you pretty much know what you’re gonna get with the LGBT community.” She also has mixed feelings about the Democratic side of the aisle, saying, “I’m on the conservative Republican side. I’m not excited with what Obama has done to the economy, to our Constitution, all that kind of stuff. But as far as the transgender community, they’ve actually been very good.”
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Jenner previously praised Trump in April after she used the bathroom at his Trump Tower in New York City without issue. “Last week, Donald Trump said I could use any bathroom I wanted in the Trump Tower. So of course, I veered right in there and took care of myself,” she said during a speech at the Time 100 gala.
And while Jenner hasn’t publicly committed to voting for Trump yet, she did say on an “I Am Cait” episode earlier this year that the “country is over” if Clinton is elected. She also said in a March radio interview, “Whoever’s the Republican candidate, obviously I’m going to vote that direction.”
