Jenner slams Trump over Trans military ban
Caitlyn Jenner has slammed US President Donald Trump following his ban of transgender men and women from serving in the military.
“There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them?” she asked in response to Trump’s June 2016 tweet where he promised the LGBT community,
“I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.”
Jenner’s response came hours after the announcement for Trump that transgender people would not be serving in the US armed forces.
Though Jenner is a longtime Republican, this is not the first time she has spoken out against decisions made by the Trump administration.
In February, she called the choice to revoke guidelines on transgender use of bathrooms in public schools a “disaster.”
