WATCH: Caitlyn Jenner Tells Fellow Republican Donald Trump His Transgender Rights Rollback ‘Is a Disaster’
In a video on Twitter, Caitlyn Jenner gave a tongue lashing to President Donald Trump for rolling back federal guidelines that allow transgender students to use public school restrooms that match their gender identity.
Jenner, a longtime Republican, first offered motivational words to transgender youth population of America.
“You’re winning. I know it doesn’t feel like it today or every day, but you are winning,” said Jenner.
She addressed the “bullies,” singling out Jeff Sessions. “You’re sick,” she began, “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.”
Jenner concluded her statements by speaking to the president directly.
“I have a message for President Trump, from one Republican to another,” Jenner continued. “This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”
Jenner initially told STAT she believed that Trump would be a better candidate for women than Hillary Clinton when Trump was named the presumptive Republican nominee in June of 2016.
“Everybody looks at the Democrats as being better with these [LGBT] issues. But 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,” Jenner said at the time. “He backed the LGBT community. But in Trump’s case, there’s a lot more unknowns. With Hillary, you pretty much know what you’re gonna get with the LGBT community.”
During a campaign trail visit to the Today show in April 2016, Trump said that Jenner would be allowed to use “any bathroom she chooses” at Trump Tower.
Jenner took him up on his offer and posted a video on Facebook documenting the experience.
