Caitlyn Jenner: "I Never Actually Came Out And Outwardly Supported Trump"


Caitlyn Jenner, making the rounds promoting her new book, sat down with Fox News' Tucker Carlson to parse her past support (or non-support) for Donald Trump.

At the top of the interview, Carlson suggests coming out in support of Trump while living in Malibu, California, might have been one of Caitlyn's "braver" moments.

Caitlyn replied:

“They were fine in Malibu with it [Jenner’s support for Trump], but let’s put it this way, I never actually came out and outwardly supported Trump. The media did that for me. I am on the Republican, conservative side, and he wound up being our candidate. And so, certainly, I was going to vote for him. He looked like he would pretty good on all LGBT issues. Which is important, because my loyalties do not lie with Donald Trump.

“My loyalties do not lie with the Republican Party. My loyalties, and what I’m fighting for is my community, the LGBT community, and particularly the trans issues that are out there, because there are many of them. And so, that’s where my fight is. And I thought Trump would be pretty good. But he’s kind of disappointed me in the first 100 days on those issues.”

Jenner went on to explain she didn't vote for Hillary Clinton because she's not a "one issue voter."
