Caitlyn Jenner slams Trump for rolling back transgender protections

BTW
Caitlyn Jenner has been the LGBTQ community’s most prominent supporter of President Trump, but she’s drawing a line in the sand. 

Thursday evening she took to Twitter and blasted the Trump administration for not holding up its end of the bargain. 

“From, well, one Republican to another,” Jenner said in a video posted to Twitter. “This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”

The activist-minded video comes as Trump prepares to roll back federal protections for transgender students in public schools.

Jenner also blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for reportedly influencing Trump, as the White House curbed the Obama-era guidelines this week.

“Now I have a message for the bullies—you’re sick. And because you’re weak you pick on kids, you pick on women, or anyone else you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming the attorney general isn’t enough to cure some people of their insecurities,” she said.

But the video was optimistic overall. Targeting transgender youth, Jenner was reaffirming in message: “You’re winning.”

She also directed viewers to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
