Caitlyn Jenner Says Trump Has Been 'Worst Ever' *LINK* *PIC*

Caitlyn Jenner is holding a tough line on President Donald Trump. The world's most famous openly transgender woman—and proud Republican—now says Trump is the worst thing to happen to the trans rights movement.

“As far as trans issues, this administration has been the worst ever,” Jenner told Newsweek at the Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala in New York City on Thursday night.

“They’ve set our community back 20 years, easily,” Jenner said. “It’s going to be hard to change, but we’ve been through these types of things before and we’ll continue to fight it.”

Jenner, a retired Olympic gold medalist, criticized the president a year ago when he ordered an end to federal protections allowing trans students to use bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity. In a tweet, she called the order a “disaster,” reminded Trump that he promised to protect the LGBTQ community, and asked him to “Call me.”

In July, Jenner said her "allegiance is not" with Trump after he banned transgender people from serving in the military. But the following month, Jenner was sporting a "Make America Great Again" hat, seemingly signaling she had not completely changed her mind about Trump since supporting him during his presidential campaign.

Jenner said Thursday that she has not had a word with Trump, though she attended an inauguration event.

“I did come back to the inauguration to meet people,” she said. “And out of that I have built some very nice and good relationships with the Republican Party, but I have not been back to see Trump.”
