"We’ve been through these types of things before and we’ll continue to fight it."
Caitlyn Jenner has called Donald Trump out for his regressive stance on trans issues in the past, and she's still not seeing any progress. "As far as trans issues, this administration has been the worst ever," she told NewsWeek at the Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala in New York City on Thursday. "They’ve set our community back 20 years, easily," she continued. "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 previously called Trump out for his decision to stop allowing trans students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity. "Well @realDonaldTrump, from one Republican to another, this is a disaster," she wrote on Twitter. "You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me."
As per her conversation with NewsWeek, Jenner would like to see Trump "do a better job when it comes to equality" in general. “We’re all Americans. I think of it this way. We have diversity in mankind, humankind. We have diversity all over the place, diversity in the way people look, diversity in religion, diversity in skin color,” she said. “Wouldn’t it be a dull world if everybody was the same?”
Jenner recently spoke to CNN in a segment for International Women's Day. "Women are brought up to kind of be a second-class citizen. Emotionally weaker. Physically weaker. I've always been inspired by strong women," she said. Watch a clip from her interview here.
