She may have changed her gender, but Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t plan to change her political views. Bruce Jenner was a lifelong Republican and so is Caitlyn. That is why it came as no surprise when she said she would vote for Trump. And it, definitely, isn’t shocking that Caitlyn will attend his inauguration as well.
People magazine reported that Jenner is going to the event as a guest of the American Unity Fund, a conservative LGBTQ rights advocacy organization. A source familiar with the star of canceled I Am Cait show said “Caitlyn has been a Republican all her life and she sees this as an opportunity to represent and defend the LGBTQ community within her own party. Caitlyn sees this as a chance to bring attention to LGBTQ causes and she is committed to protecting human rights no matter the political party in power,” they added. “She has no problem speaking out if Republicans fail to protect equal rights.”
Although she wasn’t, actually, invited by Mr. Trump, his advisors urge him to save one dance for this reality TV star and former athlete. NY Post’s Richard Johnson reported that President-elect Donald Trump is being urged by some advisers to save at least one dance, as he celebrates his inauguration on Friday night, for a very special Republican lady — Caitlyn Jenner.
One member of his administration confessed it’s a brilliant idea for many reasons. First, it would help LGBTQ community mend fences with the Republican Party. It would also send a message that the incoming President of the US supports gay rights and trans rights.
Trump also has all nice things to say about Caitlyn and even stated she can use any bathroom she wants at the Trump tower.
