Caitlyn Jenner may yet run again, but not in the track field where ‘he’ first got famous and became an American hero but perhaps in the rough and tumble world of politics. She has finally admitted her interest to more concretely pursue her political plans through a potential senate run.
The former Olympic champion, Reality TV star and transgender activist shared to radio host John Catsimatidis that she “would look for a senatorial run.”
Jenner, a Republican, also said that public service always had an appeal on her. She added: ”I like the political side of it. The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that.”
Jenner is of course also known for being one of the few Hollywood superstars who supported President Donald Trump in the last election. She was also famously quoted for describing Hillary Clinton as a “liar.”
While Jenner continues to support Trump and the Republican party, she however expressed some disappointment with the President on his administration’s stance for LGBT issues, in spite of Trump’s promising start with the concerns for the community. Jenner said she is pinning her hopes on U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley to discuss LGBT issues worldwide.
Jenner also attended last month a College Republican National Committee’s summer convention where she spoke against the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and airing support for Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the said accord. She also professed her support for the U.S. military in the said event, saying that the U.S. must continue having the strongest military in the world “so that no one will screw us.”
She also hailed the Republican party’s success having taken the White House, and dominating in Congress and the Senate as she called on Republicans to “really make a difference.”
