Caitlyn Jenner Says She Won't Support Trump's Reelection

Wednesday May 23, 2018

In an in-depth interview with Vice's Broadly, Caitlyn Jenner offered updates on her relationship with the Kardashian family, as well as her feelings towards President Donald Trump, whom she supported and voted for during the 2016 presidential election.

In the piece called "Caitlyn Jenner's Quest for Acceptance," the Olympic athlete said, "because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough."

"They all have lives. They've all moved on," Caitlyn said of her children, which include Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who she had with Kris Jenner, mother of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian."We're just human beings; we're going to be here for a very short time. We come and we go and at the end, when it's all said and done, hopefully, your family is going to be there."

The split between Caitlyn and the Kardashian family came after she released her 2017 memoir "The Secrets of My Life."

"I got the trans community out there bashing on me. I got the Kardashians out there bashing on me," Caitlyn told Broadly. "All I do is sit here in the house and try to stay out of trouble."

The interview also focused on Caitlyn's political views. When she came out as a trans woman about three years ago, she also revealed she's a Republican. During the 2016 presidential election, she endorsed Trump and voted for him. Since being elected, the "I Am Cait" star once said she was working with the Trump administration on LGBTQ issues but during a diversity speech she delivered at the House of Commons in the British Parliament, Caitlyn said Trump set the trans community in the U.S. "back 20 years."

When speaking with Broadly, Caitlyn reiterated her views on Trump, saying he "has been, for all LGBT issues, the worst president we have ever had," adding that she will not be supporting his reelection.

"I want him to know, politically I am disappointed, obviously. I don't want our community to go backward," she told the publication. "Just leave us alone; that's all we want. Then maybe later down the line we can get somebody a little better."

That doesn't mean Caitlyn has converted to a Democrat, however.

"I don't know who in the Democratic Party... I would look at it. I don't vote parties. I vote the person," she said.

    Seriously? Should anyone have a doubt just how dense and out of touch she is, put that to rest. She’s proven once again she needs to take her shoes off to count to 11. Oh, gurrrrrrrl. We don’t care. Don’t be delusional. You were never nor ever will be part of ’our family’.
