Caitlyn Jenner says she’ll ‘seriously’ consider running for office
Caitlyn Jenner is one of the most visible transgender people in America. As such, the Olympian-turned-reality-star says she’s been asked by fans and people in the LGBTQ community to run for public office. Now, she’s giving the possibility some serious consideration.
“Yes, I would have to look, over the next year or two, look and see, can I do a better job on the outside or am I in a position now that I can do a better job for my community on the inside?” Jenner said on CNN Tonight Tuesday, referring to work at her trans rights foundation versus being in public office. “And if that’s the case, if I find us on the inside, I would seriously look at it.”
Jenner, a longtime Republican, voted for President Donald Trump, which outraged many in the trans community, given the president’s conservative leanings and far-right advisers.
Recently, however—especially since he rescinded protections for trans students in schools—Jenner has been distancing herself from Trump. She says she doesn’t regret voting for him, but she’s more concerned with standing up for the LGBTQ community.
“My loyalties are not with Donald Trump. I will come after him and come after Republicans if they come after my community,” she told CNN’s Don Lemon. ”I’ve got a voice, and they better listen, OK? I will come after them.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also hasn’t taken up the president’s offer to play golf. “If I was publicly seen with him, my community would go nuts,” she said.
Jenner is currently on a promotion tour for her memoir, The Secrets of My Life, which came out yesterday.
