Caitlyn Jenner: Donald Trump ‘seems very much behind the LGBT community’

Caitlyn Jenner came out as a transgender woman in 2015

Republican Caitlyn Jenner is not among those ridiculing Donald Trump’s recent claims that he would be better for the LGBTI community than rival Hillary Clinton.

‘ … 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. He backed the LGBT community,’ the transgender reality star tells Stat.

But the three-times married Trump has said he is against same-sex marriage and has said that, if elected president, he would appoint a justice to the US Supreme Court who would vote in favor of overturning last year’s landmark ruling that brought marriage equality to all 50 states.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, was also critical of the Obama administration last month for issuing directives calling on public school districts to let transgender students use bathrooms matching their gender identity.

On the most recent season of her reality show I Am Cait, Jenner was seen calling Clinton ‘ fucking liar’ and minimizing her accomplishments as Secretary of State and as US senator.

Jenner, 66, does acknowledge that Clinton is not a wild card when it comes to LGBTI issues.

‘ … In Trump’s case, there’s a lot more unknowns,’ she says. ‘With Hillary, you pretty much know what you’re gonna get with the LGBT community.’
