President Donald Trump annulled protections for transgender students that had allowed them to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity. Trump’s move overruled his own education secretary and placed his administration firmly in the middle of the culture wars that many Republicans have tried to avoid.
The top civil rights officials from both the Justice Department and the Education Department rejected the Obama administration’s position that nondiscrimination laws require schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choice.
In response to Trump’s move, Bruce Jenner now known as “ Caitlyn Jenner “, aged 67, shared a video on Twitter in which she expressed her anger about the President’s recent decision to lift the federal protections for transgender student bathroom use.
Bruce Jenner made a statement in which she said that she had a message for the transgender kids of America, urging them that they are winning and that very soon win full freedom nationwide, adding that their victory will be with bipartisan support. She also said that the bullies are sick, in what seemed like an insult to President Trump and those who advocate for the recent move.
Bruce Jenner attended President Trump’s inauguration and she has ever since been very vocal about her Republican views. After Trump’s administration ended the Obama-era federal protection for transgender students that allowed them to use public school bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender identities, Jenner concludes in her video saying that she has a message for President Trump, adding that the decision is a disaster and that President Trump can still fix it. She also told Trump that he had earlier on promised to protect the LGBTQ community.
Bruce Jenner came out as a transgender woman back in 2015 after she undergone sex changes. She has defied many in the transgender movement who are opposed to Trump and she showed her support for Trump by attending the inauguration and also the Republican convention when Trump was officially nominated.
President Trump had made specific pledge after the Orlando shooting last June when Omar Mateen launched a gun attack on a gay nightclub that claimed the lives of 49 people and wounded 50 more.
