Just days after slamming President Trump’s transgender military ban, Caitlyn Jenner proudly displayed her support for the president by sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat while driving around Malibu in a classic Triumph Spitfire sports car.
“There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us,” Jenner tweeted on July 26. “What happened to your promise to fight for them?”
The 67-year-old publicly supported Trump, 71, throughout the 2016 presidential election season, much to the dismay of her fellow transgender advocates on her former E! series, I Am Cait.
Jenner told CNN that she didn’t regret casting her vote for Trump, saying, “I don’t support him in everything that he does, but we needed to shake the system up.”
Jenner released a full statement on her website shortly after Trump announced his transgender military ban on Twitter.
“I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country’s uniform,” she wrote.
“Furthermore, this half-baked idea puts all of our service members in harm’s way. Does President Trump intend to just pull 15,000 people out of every critical position to which they are currently assigned? That would disrupt core military missions around the world and needlessly endanger our troops.”
Jenner concluded her blog post: “America’s 15,000 trans service members and 134,000 veterans are much braver than you, Mr. Trump; my allegiance is with them and our country, not you.”
