WASHINGTON -- Caitlyn Jenner is taking President Trump to task for his administration’s reversal of a directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms.
Jenner addresses Mr. Trump in a video posted Thursday night on Twitter. She says, “From one Republican to another, this is a disaster.”
The Trump White House has ended a directive issued during Obama’s presidency that told public schools to let transgender students use bathrooms and locker rooms of their chosen gender.
Jenner is particularly critical of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying, “Apparently even becoming attorney general isn’t enough to cure some people of their insecurities.”
Addressing Mr. Trump, the former Olympic champion says: “You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”
Jenner came out as a transgender woman in 2015.
She began by saying, “I have a message for the trans kids of America. You’re winning. I know it doesn’t feel like it today or every day, but you are winning. Very soon, we’ll win full freedom nationwide, and it’s going to be with bipartisan support. You can help by checking out the National Center for Transgender Equality and letting Washington hear you loud and clear.
“Now, I have a message for the bullies.You’re sick. And because you’re weak, you pick on kids, you pick on women or anyone you think is vulnerable.”
